Loudoun Ponders Stadium Admissions Tax

Among the items the Loudoun Board of Supervisors will consider sending with state legislators to next year’s General Assembly session in Richmond is a request to tax stadium admissions.

While, as proposed, the request would apply to all events at any stadium used by professional or semi-professional sports teams, the primary target is the stadium planned for the Loudoun Hounds — .

The request came from the Hounds, with the idea the tax would be returned to pay for construction of the stadium, which is approved near the Route 7/Route 28 interchange in the planned Kincora development.

As currently worded, the request calls for up to a 10 percent tax on admission to games or any other events at county stadiums.
