Will Indiana Be the Next State to Tax Strip Club Patrons?

Patrons of Indiana strip clubs may soon be forced to pay a $5 adult entertainment tax, as an organization aiding victims of sexual assault is now pressing state lawmakers to pass a bill that will serve to supplement their state funding.

According to Erik Scheub of the Indiana Coalition Against Sexual Assault, the state currently supports the group to the tune of about $25,000 a year; an amount he claims only provides the bare minimum of assistance for victims of sex crimes.

In Texas, a similar strip club tax generates more than $10 million annually, says Scheub, with states like Utah and Illinois following suite by implementing tax programs to increase funding for survivors of sexual abuse.

Recent studies have found that there is an undeniable connection between those who frequent establishments that provide adult entertainment and sexual abuse.
