New Arts Tax Proposed in State Budget

By Miles Cohen on September 21, 2009

As I'm sure all of you have heard, there is a potential state sales tax coming to the performing arts/concert world.  At this moment we don't have any more details on the proposed legislation, but we'll be sure to keep you informed.

A good place place to stay in touch with "what's going on" in the local arts economy is the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance website - they have a strong "Advocacy" section that pulls news from a variety of sources.

Also, see Peter Dobrin's blog ArtsWatch for updates from the Philadelphia Inquirer, including this one.
