Washington, D.C. Mayor Proposes To Tax Performing Arts and Museum Tickets

“The change, as reflected in budget legislation submitted by the Gray administration, would end a sales tax exemption long extended to ‘live performances of ballet, dance, or choral performances, concerts (instrumental and vocal), plays (with and without music), operas and readings and exhibitions of paintings, sculpture, photography, graphic and craft arts’.”
