The Italian equivalent of the Inland Revenue rules on taxes for lap dancers

And of two possible tax rates, the Agenzia alle Entrate has chosen the higher, because "shows are in the 10% tax bracket while audience participation bumps up the tax to 16%", and prompted this po faced explanation:

"The active participation of the client in the dancer's act and his physical involvement in it are not caused by mere chance but are a strong characteristic of the very nature of the lap dance". More here

Do you suppose they based this on hearsay evidence, or the various government inspectors had to do some field research?

(And while I know that there are lap dancing cognoscenti among my regulars, let's keep this PG, please)

field research invloved by my guess. Bet they took their tape measures too....

Taxes in Italy are often optional, but you attract the attention of the Agenzia delle Entrate at your peril; they have serious powers. And tape measures, as C.U. divined.

Back in the 80s someone calculated that if all the taxes levied were collected, it would amount to well over 100% of Italy's GDP.

Haven't actually had the pleasure of a lapdancing performance, Mr. C. What's it like, from personal experience?

Strangely alienating and sexless, actually.

Imagine a restaurant where you pay to view the food......

Pretty pointless really.
