Illinois Removes Tampon Tax

Governor Bruce Rauner has signed an Illinois law removing sales tax from feminine hygiene products, a prominent example of the “pink tax” or trend of charging more for women’s products than men’s. What do you think?

“Why should these items be exempt from taxation, but not men’s products like computers and cars?”

“Yeah, but knowing women, they’ll probably just blow the extra cash on even more necessary products.”

Benjamin Farber • Fence Installer

“May I be reimbursed for the 5,400 tampons I’ve previously purchased?”
