Two Gentlemen's Clubs Challenge Lap Dance Tax

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

The tax review board heard a challenge tonight from two gentlemen's clubs.

They were hit with bills for back taxes totaling more than $800,000.

They say the city amusement tax is already applied to the clubs' admission fees, and a levy on lap dances amounts to taxing the same thing twice.

The mayor's office says the amusement tax should apply and denies accusations that the tax is a money grab.
