CINCINNATI WEIGHS EARNINGS TAX ON VISITING TEAM
Published November 11, 1994
Cincinnati officials are considering imposing a earnings tax on visiting sports teams at Riverfront. Hamilton County Commissioner John Dowlin said that his proposal that the city impose a 2.1% earning tax on the visiting teams could generate $1M a year for stadium repairs. At least three cities -- Philadelphia, Detroit and Cleveland -- currently impose a earnings tax on visiting sports teams (David Swint, CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 11/11).
