Dutch government to tax sex workers

The Dutch government is set to start cracking down on tax-evading sex workers in Amsterdam's red light district.

Prostitution brings in an estimated US$865 million per year in The Netherlands. Officials hope a 19% tax rate will help to balance the nation's books.

But critics of the move wonder how accurate records can be kept.

Nevertheless, some sex workers see paying taxes as a path to social legitimacy.

Should it prove a success, other cash-strapped European countries may be tempted to follow suit.

In addition, states such as California could also tax prostitution to help close their budget gaps.
