Summer's on its way and so is the tanning tax.
As part of the health care reform bill passed last night by the House, several taxes will start showing up to help pay for the changes.
The 10 percent excise tax on indoor tanning services takes effect July 1. So you might want to schedule your session sooner rather than later.
Other taxes and payment mechanisms are further down the road, such as limiting flexible spending account contributions to $2,500 beginning in 2013 and taxes on "Cadillac" coverage to be paid by insurers starting in 2018.
The Tax Foundation provides a comprehensive look in a nifty timeline of all the taxes that will pay for the $940 billion in new health care spending over the next 10 years.
