Cleveland Tax Cut

Cleveland, Ohio, nightclubs with capacities of fewer than 250 could benefit from a tax compromise.

Mayor Frank Jackson offered clubs the deal, which would apply the city’s 8 percent ticket tax to only 25 percent of the gate collected by small venues.

The proposal would apply the tax to 50 percent of the money collected by clubs holding 250-500.

The deal isn’t done yet, but the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that both club owners and council members are “celebrating” the possible compromise.
