Multistate – Gym Membership Fees Taxable in 24 States

Salt Report 3632 – This article in Accounting Today addresses the recent study performed by Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting US.  The study focused on the taxation of membership dues and found that 24 states assessed tax on staying fit including Texas, Florida and New Jersey.  21 states do not assess tax on staying fit including California, Illinois and New York.

The article also addresses the non taxing NOMAD states but be careful here.  Correction – the states that do not impose a sales tax are New Hampshire, Oregon, Montana, Alaska and Delaware (NOMAD).  The article incorrectly included Arkansas as a non taxing state.
