What is the Admissions Tax?
The Columbus City Council unanimously passed ordinances in December 2018 to adopt a 5% admissions tax to all qualifying events - including Blue Jackets games - held in our city beginning July 1, 2019.
Will the admissions tax be applied to my tickets for the 2019-20 season?
All ticket plans committed to on or after July 1, 2019 will be subject to the admissions tax.
Any individual or company that commits to a ticket plan by June 30, 2019, irrespective of when payment is made, will not be subject to the admissions tax. Ticket packages do not need to be paid in full by July 1, 2019 to be exempt from the admissions tax.
How does the admissions tax impact 2019-20 single game and group tickets?
All single game or group tickets will be subject to the 5% admissions tax.
