AADA opposes tanning tax repeal in BCRA

June 26, 2017

With the U.S. Senate expected to vote this week on the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), its version of legislation to repeal provisions of the Affordable Care Act, the AADA sent a letter to Senate leaders urging them to maintain the tax on indoor tanning services. The Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that repealing the tax would "...reduce revenues by approximately $622 million over the next 10 years, thereby ending a funding source that could be used to address other pressing public health challenges and priorities."  Click here to read the letter.
