“Strip Tax” Stands in Utah

Utah levies a 10-percent tax on adult-oriented businesses, with revenues targeted to pay for treating sex offenders. A group of strip clubs challenged the constitutionality of the tax, saying it was overly broad.

The U.S. Supreme Court says – the tax stands.

The high court refused to hear the strip clubs’ appeal to overturn the tax, which was previously upheld by the Utah courts.

The Utah Supreme Court previously ruled that the so-called “Sexually Explicit Business and Escort Services” tax is not a violation of the business’s First Amendment rights.
