As of June 2017 all states but nine implemented putting a "luxury tax" on feminine hygiene products! By Laws.com Luxury items are classified as follows.. "Luxury taxes are those which are imposed on goods considered a luxury.Luxury items are those which are not considered essential, such as luxury cars and items such as jewelry. Items considered a luxury are taxed as a percentage of the sale price, but likely at a higher percentage than the regular sales tax." -Laws.com
Feminine hygiene products are NOT a luxury. They are an unavoidable necessity. This is not only a misuse of the definition of "luxury" this is also discrimination since ONLY females are the group that this affects. Females do not have a choice to have menstrual cycles. Why should women be taxed extra for something that is not a "choice" or a "luxury"? STOP THE INSANITY. STOP THE SEXISM. STOP DISCRIMINATION.
