The state of NJ wants to call my studio a Health Club. All of my clients come in for instruction. They do not come in and just work on machines.
I have a small studio about 2, 000 square feet with one Multi station, Smith machine, couple of treadmills and bikes. (which we use for Personal Training sessions” . The tax lady said because I had sign for “grab & go” $1.00 for powerbars I am to collect tax on it! (I lose money on that $ by the way) ( the sign was there but there was no product” We had no powerbars or any items. We just forgot to put away the sign. Help!
It’s a gray area in that you have similar equipment that a gym or health club have.
I would comply in that it’s on a matter of logistics, does it really matter if you’re classified as a Health Club? Where will it make the difference? Your clients know what you do.
If you had no power bars, why is she questioning you?
