New Indoor Tanning Tax

tanningbedorange.jpegThe Internal Revenue Service's regulations placing a 10% tax increase on indoor tanning services went into effect July 1st. The tax does not apply to phototherapy services performed by licensed medical professionals.

The tax is due at time of payment for the services; if the customer does not pay the tax, the provider becomes liable for it. The taxes must be reported quarterly on IRS Form 720, Quarterly Federal Excise Tax Return.

The new tax on indoor tanning is one of many provisions included in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which was enacted as Public Law 111-148 on March 23, 2010.
