10 States That Have Eliminated the ‘Pink Tax’ on Menstrual Products1m24s

10 States That Have Eliminated the ‘Pink Tax’ on Menstrual Products

10 states have eliminated the “pink tax” on menstrual products. According to pink.tax, the pink tax is when goods and services “cost more for females then for males for no good reason.” Things like razors, clothes, and toys cost more when they are marketed toward women. Nebraska, Virginia, and Arizona have also introduced legislation to repeal the tax. New York, Illinois, Connecticut, and Florida just made the change in the last two years. After the 2018 midterm elections, Nevada became the 10th state to eliminate the tax on feminine hygiene products like pads and tampons. It was a 6.85% state tax rate. It joins other exempted items like groceries, candy, and soda. The Pink Tax Repeal Act was introduced to Congress in 2016 seeking to ban the tax nationwide. But the bill didn’t pass. The “tampon tax” is a byproduct of the pink tax which many say is a form of gender discrimination since feminine hygiene products are a necessity and not a luxury.
