Searching for your soul mate? Don't go to Nebraska to find a date -- the state might charge you for it.
Earlier this year, Nebraska was considering a tax on about 60 services not currently subject to the state's sales tax, hoping to raise more than $44 billion by 2011.
In addition to a tax on the use of dating services, a whole slew of other odd services were in the running, including scooter and motorcycle repairs, shoe shines, reflexology, massages, tree trimming, taxidermy, fur storage, detective services, garment alterations, dance studios and armored car services. Getting your gun or camera repaired would have also cost you an extra few bucks.
Although the bill hasn't been enacted into law and the state Legislature has adjourned for the year, it could be revived next year, said Gerry Oligmueller, state budget administrator of Nebraska.
