Texas Strip Club Tax To Continue During Appeal

The Comptroller of the state of Texas has sent out letters to strip clubs in the past few days demanding that they continue to pay a $5 per patron tax while the state appeals a ruling late last month that invalidated the tax.

On March 28th, state district Judge Scott Jenkins ruled that the “pole tax” is an illegal tax on constitutionally protected expression and issued an injunction barring collection. An appeal by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott automatically suspended the injunction, resulting in a demand for payment on April 21st.
