A 10% sales tax on indoor tanning is in effect nationwide starting July 1. It TMs all part of the new Federal Health Care Bill.
While some businesses don TMt fear the tax, others say they have already seen changes in customers. Tropical Sun Tanning Manager Angela Gillard says she knows how the bill will affect them. I TMve had a lot of complaints, I TMve had a lot of drop offs and cancellations since we TMve known that the tax was coming. So it TMs really going to hurt our business says Gillard.
The bill is estimated to generate $2.7 billion over ten years.
