Admissions to South Carolina State Museum Are Exempt

This summer at the South Carolina State Museum, visitors can learn about South Carolina’s role in the American Revolutionary and Civil Wars, or roll up their sleeves and dig for dinosaurs. And beginning July 1, 2014, visitors will not pay tax on admissions charged by the South Carolina State Museum.
Some states tax admissions to museums and some don’t. South Carolina’s northern neighbor, North Carolina, used to exempt admission charges but has taxed them since the beginning of this year. And South Carolina generally levies, assesses, and collects a license tax of five percent (plus applicable local taxes) “paid upon paid admissions to places of amusement." Only admissions to the State Museum are exempt.
