It Rubs The Taxes On Its Skin

Illinois Skin Tax

Or else it gets the fines again.

Beginning today, about 150 new laws go into effect in Illinois.

A new law will require strip club operators to impose a $3 surcharge per customer with the option that clubs pay an annual fee of $5,000 to $25,000, based on sales. The tax will only affect those strip clubs that serve alcohol. The tax is designed to raise money for rape crisis centers and is expected to raise about $1 million annually. (H/TSmite)

Three dollars per customer? At least tell me they’ll pass the savings on to the customer . . . in the form of lap dances.
