EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – While the tanning industry is facing new restrictions, “Tan-a-holics” will soon be paying a new tax. 
It’s part of a provision in the health care reform law. Starting July 1, there will be a 10 percent tax on all indoor tanning sessions.  The new tax only applies to UV services.  The popular spray tans are not included.  Dr. Ralph Bashioum, a cosmetic surgeon with Bashioum Cosmetic Surgery Center talks about the health risks.
