United States Senate levies tax on fake tans

snookie-punched1Senate leaders have cut out the five-percent tax on elective cosmetic surgery, colloquially known as the Botox-tax, and replaced it with a 10-percent tax on indoor tanning. The proposed tax would apply only to tanning beds that deliver UV radiation, not spray tans or airbrush tans, and will be added directly to the price of the tan.

Strangely the tax becomes effective during the Summer, beginning July 1, 2010.

Early reports and unconfirmed rumors have been circulating that International Federation of Bodybuilders and National Physique Committee athletes, as well as the entire “Jersey Shore” cast have begun organizing protests.
