The New Jersey Division of Taxation ("Division") recently ruled that no tax applies to personal training sessions or weight loss challenge entry fees.

The taxpayer provided personal training sessions for individuals and groups. The sessions were pre-scheduled, by appointment only, and prepaid per month. Additionally, customers were able to pay an entry fee to participate in a weight loss challenge to win a cash prize.

New Jersey only taxes services that are designated as taxable. Charges to use a health and fitness facility are designated as taxable. However, separate charges for classes that have an instructor present are nontaxable personal services.

The Division ruled that no tax applied to the personal training sessions because they are nontaxable personal services. The ruling also determined that no tax applied to the weight loss challenge entry fee because it is not a service designated as taxable in New Jersey.
