Strip Club Tax Brings In Fewer Dollars Than Expected

The state of Illinois passed a strip club tax back in 2012.

Strip clubs can pay a $3 tax for every customer or an annual fee ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 based on sales. 

The money is earmarked for rape crisis centers. 

The problem is that the tax has generated less than 40 percent of the money it was supposed to.

The so called "pole tax'' raised about $380,000 in 2013.

It was supposed to generate about $1 million.

Experts say that the problem is that the law only applies to strip clubs that have alcohol and in Chicago strip clubs can’t have booze.
