J.R. Ewing wouldn't hesitate to cheat his fellow man. He also famously cheated death. In the second-season finale of “Dallas” back in 1980, he was shot by an unknown assailant in his office and left for dead. But he recovered nicely, and the cliffhanger question that gripped the nation (Who shot J.R.?) was answered that November in an episode seen by 80 million viewers.

Services that would fall under the tax are wide ranging, from wedding planning, dating services and golf lessons to lawyer bills, architectural services and tattoos, according a detailed list released late in the day by the Department of Revenue.
