Starting July 1, 2021, sales of the right to purchase the privilege of admission to collegiate athletic events in a preferred viewing location for the season, is exempt from sales tax when all the following apply:

  • The amount of the right to purchase is used entirely to support student scholarships, wellness, and academic costs
  • The amount of the right to purchase is separately stated from the admission price
  • The admission price is equal to or greater than the highest priced general admission ticket for the closest seat not in the preferred viewing location

Note: the charge for admission is still taxable.
