Taxing prostitution in the US?

I'm doing research for a story I'm planning to write. I have everything I need except one detail which is pretty crucial: if they were to make prostitution legal (i.e. put them in brothels/quarters) in the US and start taxing the workers, how would that work? I searched google and wikipedia but what information I did manage to find I couldn't quite wrap my head around it because 1) I'm terrible at math and 2) I've never had a job long enough to really learn about being taxed so I don't know how it all works. Sorry if this is a really stupid question but I need help!
