Admissions Taxes

Admissions greater than $1.05 per person are taxable, with the exception of greens fees and annual memberships to golf courses, resale of tickets, and certain service charges.

These forms are to license you to collect taxable admission and authorize you to act as the City's agent in the collection and payment of taxes received on admissions inside the City of Cincinnati.

Please see Section 309-3 of the Cincinnati Municipal Code for a more detailed explanation.

The License Fee is $50 annually or for a temporary permit issued for specific date(s) of an event.

The bond amount is at the discretion of the City of Cincinnati Treasury Division.
