Do you pay taxes on your memberships at the gyms/clubs you work at?
I work at a public university, and to be compliant with tax laws, they are requiring all of my staff to complete forms that state they accept it as a taxable benefit and will claim it as such (many of my staff that have to do this are contractors). I have worked in several other gyms before and have generally been given a membership before I even started to teach, so I'm curious what do your gyms do / handle this?
I havent paid for a membership at a Health Club for over 25 years and have never heard of this procedure, the membership has always been included with employment!
Always contact your tax accountant/advisor with any questions regarding taxes/deductions.
I am a part-time employee at a Wellness Center that is part of a hospital. I have membership privileges there without this being a taxable benefit.
It could be a matter of improper wording since most clubs add the membership in as a perk.
