Proposed Pittsburgh ordinance would make performers pay fair share for taxpayer facilities

Mayor Bill Peduto’s administration is introducing an ordinance to close a loophole that allowed performers that come to Pittsburgh to hide income and get out of paying full value for using taxpayer-funded facilities. 

 

The ordinance is a response to legislation created by Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak (District 4) in 2014 calling on City Controller Michael Lamb to audit the Sports and Exhibition Authority and the Stadium Authority. That audit found a loophole that allowed performers to hide their earnings from the city by paying themselves a small amount and utilizing a trust account to shield the remainder of their earnings.
