SUPPORT #FICAforSALONS

Employment-based salons have been subject to unfair disparities in the tax code for decades - take action now to include salons in FICA!

#FICAforSALONS

The beauty industry for FICA Tax Tip Fairness

In 1993 Congress passed the 45B FICA tax tip credit allowing restaurants to claim a dollar-for-dollar tax tip credit on the employer portion of FICA taxes that businesses pay on tips that employees receive directly from their customers.

As the second-highest tipped industry, salons should receive parity with the restaurant industry in the tax code, but presently they do not. Including the salon and spa industry in this legislation could help our industry greatly.
