The Minnesota Department of Revenue released a notice explaining how sales for admission to places of amusement are taxed.

Minnesota taxes sales of admission to places of amusement, recreation areas, and athletic events. Such places include theaters, performance halls, and stadiums. The tax is based on the sales price. The sales price includes charges for any "features of admission" that the seller requires the buyer to purchase as part of the admission. For example, if the seller requires the buyer to pay for parking services, will call, or other amenities, those charges are part of the taxable sales price. However, charges for amenities that are itemized and are not required with the purchase of admission are not included in the sales price.
