Admission Tax Increases Ticket Prices For Sporting Events

Last updated on Tuesday, January 29, 2013

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Prepare to pay more for a ticket to see the Pacers, Colts and Indians.

The Indianapolis City-County Council voted Monday to increase the county admission tax to Capital Improvement Board venues.

The venues include Lucas Oil Stadium, Bankers Life Fieldhouse and Victory Field, and the tax has been bumped from 6 percent to 10 percent.

Council members did agree no one wanted to raise the tax, but some said it was the only option Mayor Greg Ballard had left them. Ballard said the money will go to support the CIB budget and to offset the cost of public safety.

The Council passed a supplemental auto rental excise tax, increasing it from 4 to 6 percent.
