§ 12 – Amusement and Recreation Services
The bill extends the sales tax to certain amusement and recreation services.
Under the bill, the sales tax applies to charges for activities included in major group 79 of the 1987 Standard Industrial Classification Manual or sector 71 in the 1997 North American Industrial Classification Manual. These classifications cover such activities, events, and venues as performing arts; professional and other spectator sports; museums and historical sites; zoos and botanical gardens; the amusement, gambling, and recreation industries, including amusement and theme parks and arcades; golf and country clubs; marinas; skiing facilities; fitness and recreational sports centers; dance studios; and bowling alleys.
The bill continues to exempt charges for:
1. dancing lessons;
2. amusement and recreations services provided by (a) the federal, state, or local government or other state political subdivision; (b) a nonprofit charitable hospital, nursing home, rest home, or residential care home; or (c) a federally tax-exempt entity; or
3. such services offered in a facility owned or managed by the federal, state, or local government or other state political subdivision.
The latter two exemptions apply only if (1) the activity is an athletic or sporting activity organized exclusively for people under age 19 and (2) there are no additional charges, dues, or fees for participation that are subject to the state admissions or dues tax.
EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2010 and applicable to sales occurring on or after that date. __________________
