Re: ITA's Tan Tax Response

It's not a huge deal we have to charge and collect a 10% tax to our customers........It is a big deal that Health Clubs do not! I lost customers to the gyms in the area due to nothing but the Tan Tax. It's not a level playing field!!!!

If you lost customers, strictly because of the tan tax, you didn't have much to offer in the first place. People use gym beds, not because they are normally nice equipment, but because it's convenient. They would never go to a gym, to save the 10% tan tax.

Re: ITA's Tan Tax Response

Discriminatory and hypocritical. But it reveals the true motives behind the actions. It was never about the health of the public. Dermatologists want the indoor tanning business all to themselves. We are in their way of their big bucks.
