Philadelphia's lap dance tax under review

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Philadelphia's tax review board heard information Tuesday about the city's proposed lap dance tax.

It's a controversial push to charge gentlemen's clubs under the city's longstanding "amusement tax."

But clubs like Delilah's and Club Risque say patrons already pay a tax in their cover charge and that it's double taxation.

They're threatening to file suit if the board agrees with the city.
