Camp Requests Information on IRS Outreach Efforts on Tanning Tax

June 11, 2010

Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Dave Camp (R-MI) today wrote to Douglas H. Shulman, the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), asking whether the IRS would engage in aggressive outreach to notify Americans affected by the health care law’s new tax on tanning services that takes effect on July 1st.

Noting that the IRS recently sent over 4 million postcards advertising a small business health care tax credit that many employers are ineligible to receive, Camp’s letter questions whether similar outreach is anticipated for the new $2.7 billion tax on tanning salons and their customers about which the IRS quietly issued guidance earlier today.
