I hope you are having a wonderful summer – whether it is traveling or being on a staycation.
As noted below, I am away for the last 2 weeks in August, and the first week in August I was taking an intensive children’s ballet teacher training course at ABT – so my teaching schedule in August is very limited. After Labor Day, things return to normal!
I also wanted to let you know that the yoga tax issue I had previously emailed you about seems to be mostly resolved. Because the NY Dept. of Taxation has decided that yoga studios will not be obliged to collect taxes (nor back taxes) on classes, it will keep the costs of smaller and independent yoga studios down, and help protect their survival in this competitive market. The published document, which you can view online, states: “The guidance notes that charges for yoga classes by facilities in New York City that offer only instruction in various yoga disciplines are not subject to the New York City local sales tax.”
I believe there are some other pending issues and I will keep you up to date on those as I learn of them. But in the meanwhile, this is great news!
