The American Suntanning Association is working to gain support for the “Tanning Tax Repeal Act of 2015,” and you can do your part by taking 1 minute to contact your representative through our simple online form. This bill would completely repeal the 10% excise tax on indoor tanning services that was introduced in 2009.

To ensure success for our industry, we need all salons to contact their representative and urge them to support H.R. 2698. We can’t stress how crucial it is for salons to get involved in this process.

We’ve made it easy for you to contact your representative:

Based on our past experiences, salon participation has been extremely helpful when it comes to the legislative process. Please take minutes to send this letter and also call or visit your representative. This bill could make a huge impact on your business and our industry, so you need to make sure your representative knows it’s important enough to support.

Another way to help is by getting your customers involved. We’ve provided a link to share with your customers so they can submit letters to their representative as well. In the past, salons have sent this link to their customers through email and some have even setup laptops in their salons for customers to submit letters with. The more letters of support we send to congress, the more likely we are to see this bill pass.

If you are interested in getting involved in other ways, please contact us. We’ll get in touch with you if further action is necessary.
