I’m not the sort of person who pays any attention to “feminine” products. But this had me sit up. Chapstick is exempt from sales tax because it’s regarded as a medical must-have. But tampons? They’re not. 40 states levy what’s known as a “tampon tax.”
Yet, Viagra, condoms, toilet paper and many food products go tax-free. Period Equity is an organization, which is working with activists to eliminate that tax, state by state, through these witty messages.
