Question for the group. I have a client that is a bar and restaurant. The operation also has live shows on its stage. For these shows they charge admission. Are these admission charges subject to sales tax in New York? I believe that admission charges to a live performance are not subject but in this case the taxpayer is a restaurant in addition.
Thanks for you reply. My client is a bar. When they have live entertainment another entity, in no way related to my client, charges admission for the show and to the bar.. My client only maintains the bar operations. The admission charges are, at the present, kept by this other entity. That is how they get paid. My client receives nothing from the admission charges. They are hoping to start maintaining the door charges (admissions) in the future.
