If California applied the sales tax to Dodgers tickets and other sporting events, it could raise $320 million a year.
And why would the state do that? To lower the overall sales tax rate, rely less on the roller-coaster income taxes of rich people and overhaul California’s rickety, archaic revenue system. Lift it out of the mid-20th century and into the 21st.
It would have to do much more, of course, than merely tax spectator sports.
