LOS ANGELES — A new mainstream spoof of when the U.S. government actually owned the Nevada “Mustang Ranch" brothel has premiered.

Called, “Sex Tax,” the film created and directed by veteran actor, writer and producer, David Landsberg, pokes fun at the IRS when it took over the whorehouse back in the ‘90’s.

“They seized it due to all sorts of shenanigans from the guys who ran it. Of course, they (IRS) sent someone out there and said get rid of everything, and the myth was that he kept it open. So I went with the myth,” Landsberg told FOX News. “Always go with the myth, it is far more interesting.”

Landsberg argued that the legal brothel should have been bailed out of its money woes just like other businesses and not been chided just because it sold sex.

“It was a legal business; these people have the right just like anyone else to be bailed out. We’ve bailed a lot of people out, but just because this is a brothel and people don’t like it, doesn’t take away from it being a legal business,” Landsberg said. “And the star of the movie (the IRS representative) is a really moral guy.”

Landsberg shot the film in his converted North Hollywood home at the cost of $50,000 and invested another $350,000 of his own money to produce the raunchy comedy.

The movie is initially available on iTunes. A distribution deal with National Lampoon fell through, Landsberg said, after Dan Laiken, the company’s CEO was jailed for stock manipulation.

Although the movie’s hero is an IRS agent, ironically, Landsberg himself was audited. He said, “Well that happened. But I do things right.”

The film's trailer can be seen here.
