Help put an end to the Tampon Tax!
It's time to get rid of the Tampon Tax! In 40 states menstrual products, including tampons, are considered nonessential and therefore a "luxury tax" (or what we like to call a Tampon Tax) exists. Nonessential!? Hardly! It's time to talk about the tampon in the room. Menstrual products are most certainly essential - and those essential costs add up. In fact, over a lifetime, women who use tampons, for example, will spend around $2,000 on this product alone, untaxed. This monthly "luxury" costs women on average $70-$100 annually and no matter how you slice it, tampons, pads, and menstrual cups are totally essential! The Tampon Tax becomes even more of a burden for women living in households that are living paycheck-to-paycheck. This tax is literally bleeding our wallets! It's time to say NO! Join me in calling on state lawmakers to amend the tax code and get rid of the Tampon Tax!
