New Tax on Fitness Centers

New Tax on Fitness Centers

October 4, 2018 | Action Alerts | No Comments

You may have recently heard that a 1980’s sales tax on fitness centers is just now starting to be enforced. It’s getting a LOT of local attention. Two Knoxville, TN, representatives in particular intend to challenge the tax on grounds that it discourages activity in an already high chronic disease state. For more information on this tax increase and ways to contact your local legislator, please refer to the following links below.
