While Gov. Rick Scott and Speaker Richard Corcoran (R) have “bloodied” each other up this legislative session over the whole EFI and Visit Florida defunding measure, both men will most likely agree on and support any bill that cuts taxes to Floridians.
One of those bills that is moving along through the legislative process in Tallahassee is the “tampon tax.”
Lawmakers want to eliminate the sales tax on feminine hygiene products like menstrual ads. A tax is a tax, and Republicans lawmakers like Scott and Corcoran love to slash taxes, right?
Advocates for the change say these items are a necessity for women and should be considered a “common household remedy” under state law. Currently, there are thirteen states that do not impose a sales tax on these products.
If the sales tax is eliminated, women would save money, although it remains unclear how much. The change would cost the state $3.8 million a year in lost tax revenue and local governments could lose about $1 million on a recurring basis.-AP.
If cutting this tax makes women happy, by all means cut it. While lawmakers are at it, someone would propose cutting the chocolate tax for the ladies.
We all know how important chocolate is to making women feel better. I would say that every single male in the state of Florida would advocate for a fudge bill,
