Have you ever rented an automobile and found that you were charged a surprisingly high tax
for the rental?

This tax may have been used to fund a sport facility or other project. Lawmakers in Texas, for
example, introduced House Bill 92 in 1997 in order to try to fund a group of economic
development projects, including sport facilities and an expansion of the University of Texas, San
Antonio, through sales and rental taxes (United States Sports Academy, 2008).

Taxing the general public in order for select groups to be able to attend certain facilities has
long been controversial. As a sport enthusiast, you may support a tax that raises revenue for a
sport facility, but what if you are asked to pay a tax that raises money for an art museum or
opera house you never expect to visit? Raising public funding and winning over the taxpayers is
a complex process, but one that sport administrators must understand. When planning how to
fund a sport facility, it is important to know how much taxation is needed and what sources
would be the best to tap in order to not over- or under-tax the public.

For this Assignment, you calculate a new tax rate to fund a university football stadium.
