    A New York strip club can’t claim a tax exemption on entrance and performance fees on the grounds that it presents “musical arts performances,” the state’s highest court ruled.

City authorities confirmed on Friday they were extending the existing "pleasure tax" -- already levied on casinos and amusement arcades -- to brothels, erotic massage parlours and table-dancing clubs. Cologne expects to triple its pleasure tax revenues, Inge Schuermann, a city spokeswoman told Reuters. "This is about making taxes fair but also because we are more than up to our necks in financial problems," she said, shortly after Germany's parliament approved...
