Tanning TAX 10% At any rate, proponents of the tax estimated that shaking down the 25,000 stand-alone tanning salons across the country would produce $200 million for the 2011 fiscal year and $2.7 billion over 10 years. Oops. On Thursday, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration issued a new report which found that just 10,300 tanning salons filed returns, generating only $54.4 million from July 1, 2010, through March 31. That means revenues are running at a dismal 36 percent of projections. Tanning tax - Opinion - ReviewJournal.com SO only $54 million??? YET the biggest single controllable cost Driver $600 billion a year documented by physicians as a valid real number.. NOTHING! NO tax on the lawyers that DRIVE defensive medicine costs out of FEAR of lawsuits!
