Help Fight the Fitness Tax
The fitness tax is back. Under a budget proposal forged by Chairman Phil Mendelson (D) that will get an initial council vote today Wednesday, health clubs would be among the businesses now required to start collecting sales tax starting Jan. 1, 2015. The proposal was made public Tuesday night, giving council members and the public less than 18 hours to digest the proposal before an initial vote. Under this proposal VIDA Members will start paying a 5.75 percent sales tax on her class starting Jan. 1.
This will likely result in an increased cost in fitness-related services across the board.
