Nevada Brothels Ask To Be Taxed

Nevada lawmakers Wednesday considered imposing the state's first tax on legal prostitution. The tax proposal was sought by Nevada Brothel Association lobbyist George Flint, who asked lawmakers to give his industry the "privilege of participating" in the state's tax system.

Although brothels pay local government taxes and fees, the state has never levied a tax against the 28 bordellos that legally operate in 10 rural counties.

"Candidly, I think it will give us some added acceptability. I think it will probably become money the state will be able to use and appreciate," Flint said.
