Broker defends secondary ticket market
Cortney Storsved, director of operations for Minnesota's leading secondary ticket reseller Ticket King offers a defense of the resale market in a column this week in the Twin Cities Daily Planet. Storsved was responding to an earlier piece in the publication that appeared to take a stance in favor of paperless ticketing, in part because some resellers may not be paying taxes on the proceeds of their sales. Storsved said that was not true, stressing that she could "assure you that the state is receiving their cut of the taxes from secondary market sales. We spend countless man hours and money ensuring that our accounting system is in line with the guidelines laid out by the Department of Revenue." Minnesota is one of several states currently considering new regulations concerning the use of paperless tickets.
