Health Care Bill to Tax Indoor Tanning

The revised health care bill introduced by Senate Majority leader Harry Reid includes a new 10 percent tax on indoor tanning services.

According to the manager’s amendment reflecting Reid’s final changes (see pages 373-74 of the PDF):

‘‘IN GENERAL.—The term ‘indoor tanning service’ means a service employing any electronic product designed to incorporate 1 or more ultraviolet lamps and intended for the irradiation of an individual by ultraviolet radiation, with wavelengths in air between 200 and 400 nanometers, to induce skin tanning.”

The tax will be collected by the tanning salon owner, who will have to pass along a quartetly payment to the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
