Theatre Sells Carrots Instead of Tickets

In an effort to avoid a huge increase tax on theater tickets, a theater in the small town started selling  carrots instead. The owner explains in the Huffington Post story, “We sell one carrot, which costs [$16]—very expensive for a carrot,” he explains to NPR. “But then we give away admission to our shows for free.” The ticket tax is 21%, the tax on carrots is 4%. People are loving the so-called “Carrot Rebellion,” shows are selling out. There is concern that the theater is actually committing tax evasion.
