Admissions and Dues Tax Information

What's New 2022

Effective January 1, 2023, the admissions tax on admission charges of more than five dollars to any motion picture show has been eliminated.


For filing periods beginning on or after January 1, 2023, Form O-372, Admissions and Dues Taxes Return, has been renamed to Form O-372, Dues Tax Return.

Tax Rates and Exemptions

Dues Tax

Tax Rate

The dues tax rate is 10%.


The following social, athletic, or sporting clubs are exempt from the dues tax:

  • Clubs where the annual dues of a member enjoying full privileges and any initiation fee required of the member are each $100 or less.
  • Clubs sponsored and controlled by a charitable or religious organization, governmental agency, or nonprofit educational institution.
  • Any society, order, or association operating under the lodge system or any local fraternal organization among students of a college or university. Operating under a lodge system means carrying on activities under a form of organization that comprises local branches chartered by a parent organization, and are largely self-governing entities called lodges, chapters, or any similar title.
  • Lawn bowling clubs.
  • Professional organizations, such as real estate organizations, are not social, athletic, or sporting clubs and therefore are not subject to dues tax.
