Per North Carolina Department of Revenue and State of North Carolina statute, Kenan Auditorium will apply the mandated 7% sales tax to each ticket sold from the Auditorium box office (state sales tax of 4.75%; New Hanover County sales tax of 2.25%).
N.C. General Statute § 105-164.4(a)(10)
A person that operates an entertainment venue that offers an entertainment activity subject to the tax imposed by N.C. Gen. Stat. § 105-164.4(a)(10) is regarded by the Secretary as the retailer. The retailer that operates an entertainment venue is liable for the 4.75% general State and applicable local and transit rates of sales tax on the admission charges, notwithstanding that a ticket agent or person, other than a ticket reseller, sells admission tickets to the entertainment activity in addition to the retailer that operates the entertainment venue. Where the terms of an agreement provide that a person other than the operator of an entertainment venue is liable for the sales and use tax on the admission charges to the entertainment activity subject to tax per N.C. Gen. Stat. § 105-164.4(a)(10), the person that operates the entertainment venue is not liable for the tax. http://www.dornc.com/practitioner/sales/directives/SD-13-4.pdf
