Changes to amusement & recreational activities taxes

HB 1550 amended the definition of a retail sale for recreational services and the operation of athletic and fitness facilities beginning January 1, 2016. The law does not impact the sales tax exemption for physical fitness classes provided by local governments but does clarify when sales tax must be collected for recreational services and charges to use athletic facilities. For more information, please visit this Department of Revenue web page designed to help local governments navigate these changes.
