Virginia legislature considering bill to tax health clubs

IHRSA is working hard to start a grassroots campaign to halt a potentially dangerous bill.

House Bill 729 would tax exempt services, which would include health clubs' memberships and services. 

IHRSA opposes HB 729 since governments should encourage regular exercise and healthy lifestyles, not discourage them by taxing health club memberships and services.

IHRSA works to promote clubs by supporting legislation that would create incentives for more people to become physically active and join their local health club.
