Denver is Getting Rid of Their Tampon Tax
Big news from Denver: the tax that is usually added to feminine hygiene products, A.K.A., the 'Tampon Tax', is about to disappear.
The tax comes out to 4.31%, according to KDVR, and many say the additional fee is unfair because women can't control menstruation-- which, as a woman, I can confirm. Many men's products-- a good example is Rogaine-- aren't taxed at all. File that under 'things I learned when I was today years old'.
According to Fox 31, "under the proposal in Denver, the products would still be taxed by the state and RTD." Despite that, Denver wouldn't be the first city to issue exemptions on the products, and hopefully wouldn't be the last.
Let us know what you think in the poll: should tampons and other feminine products be taxed?
