Yoga Tax Not Going Down Well

May 30, 2014

When it comes to the so-called “gym tax” or “yoga tax” approved by the D.C. Council on Wednesday, gym owners want to be clear: It won’t just be a tax on well-to-do Washingtonians with plenty of cash for designer fitness memberships. It will smack those who already wince a bit when they pay that monthly membership fee. Local business owners are entering the political fray and rallying clients to help muscle the council into reconsidering the measure during its final vote on the budget next month. As approved in the first vote, customers will pay 5.75 percent tax on any fees they pay. (WBJ)
