DC Council Considers New Sales Tax Expansion
In the last week, the DC City Council has been in the early stages of considering a proposal to add new sales taxes to some services in the District. The measure is being supported by the DC Fiscal Policy Institute, the Fair Budget Coalition and others in order to add revenue to the District's bottom line.
Businesses that would be affected include health clubs, pet grooming, day spas, yoga and massage services, various cleaning services and more.
