Irwin Borough Council has decided to table a proposal to add a proposed amusement tax.
The Tribune-Review reports that the decision will be tabled until at least January, when a new council is seated in January of 2020. Council had discussed levying a five percent tax on the admission fee for entertainment with the exception of non-profit charitable groups like churches and schools. The discussion also included changing the tax to a straight $1 fee levied on tickets.
Any business that would charge a fee to see entertainment, whether it be a movie, a concert or live theater, would have been subject to the proposed tax.
