Call me crazy, but I feel like it's pretty tough to help someone reach a mental and emotional breakthrough when you're gyrating bottomless to WHITESNAKE.
There's a strip club in New York City called the Penthouse Executive Club. And they tried to get out of paying $3.1 million in state taxes back in 2011 with one . . . um, creative . . . claim.
They said their dancers weren't strippers . . . they were THERAPISTS.
In their arguments to the state tax department, they wrote, quote, "what is provided is not entertainment, but rather a nontaxable service similar to a therapeutic massage conducted in a sensual manner or personal services provided by a sex therapist."
Unfortunately for them, an appeals board didn't see it that way . . . and last week, they ruled that the club DOES have to pay the $3.1 million in taxes.(New York Daily News)
