Hey! I'm Carter, I'm a CPA and would be glad to help you out.

A yoga studio is considered to be an amusement service, which is a taxable service as defined in the Texas Tax Code section(###) ###-#### You can find more information on taxable services here: https://comptroller.texas.gov/taxes/publications/96-259.pdf.

Hope that helps. Let me know if you need anything else. If not, please leave a rating. Thanks!

She will not have a yoga studio. She is a yoga instructor who freelances.

Then it will not be. See Comptroller Rule 3.298: "2) Nonamusement services--Activities that are primarily instructional in nature, or nontaxable personal services. Places, services, and clubs that the tax on amusement services does not cover include, but are not limited to:

(B) instructions for any sport or musical discipline; "

Yoga would then fall under instructions for any sport and be exempt.
