* Amusement Tax

 

    * About Amusement Tax
* The feast and Amusement Tax Law was first promulgated in April 1942 with a view to financing local governments and to improving social custom. The feast tax, however, proved too difficult to administer. Audit manpower in the competent authorities was insufficient to prevent tax evasion by consumers and restaurants for their mutual benefit. Further, few advanced countries have levied a feast tax. Thus, to improve the tax system and to lessen the difficulties in tax administration, the government abolished the feast and Amusement Tax Law in June 1980, canceling the feast tax as such and integrating it into the business tax; the Amusement Tax Law was enacted at the same time as the legal basis for the assessment of the amusement tax.

 

    * Tax Scope
*

The amusement tax shall be levied on the prices of tickets sold or the fees collected by amusement businesses who provide any kind of on site equipment or activities for entertainment. In case no tickets are sold but drinks or entertainment devices are supplied to the consumers, the tax shall be levied on the amount of the charges. The scope of the tax is as follows:

1

The cinema.  

2

Professional singing, story-telling, dancing, circus, magic, acrobatics shows and all kinds of performances in night clubs.

3

4

5

Dance halls. 

6

    * Taxpayers
* Taxpayers of the amusement tax are those who pay the prices to enjoy the amusement. Providers or sponsors of sites, equipment or activities for entertainment act as collection agents. Taking the cinema as an example, those who watch movies are the taxpayers, while theaters who collect the tax-included tickets and pay the tax to the treasury are collection agents.
