Breaking News: City Council waives sales tax on menstrual products
LINK /


There was a thread a month ago about what this area is like in Northern Colorado, well now you know that it has been completely Californicated. Notice the proper newspeak, "people that menstruate".

quote:

Fort Collins will exempt menstrual products from city sales tax in an effort to enhance gender equity in the city's sales tax code.

The exemption, which Fort Collins City Council approved unanimously at its Tuesday meeting, is expected to take effect in mid-December (60 days after second reading). It will apply to tampons, panty liners, menstrual cups, sanitary napkins and "other similar tangible personal property designed for hygiene in connection with the human menstrual cycle" purchased in city limits, according to the ordinance.

Council listed the sales tax exemption among its 31 priorities for 2021-23. It will save an estimated 47,500 Fort Collins residents who menstruate an average of a few dollars a year and cost the city an estimated $110,000 in lost revenue from sales tax. The city's sales tax is 3.85%, and people who menstruate spend an average of $60 a year on menstrual products.

"This was one of our priorities, and it's really exciting to get it done so quickly," said Mayor pro-tem Emily Francis (formerly Gorgol). "We know that women pay a higher tax on menstrual, hair care and young girls toys, so this is just one way we're trying to advance gender equity in our city."

Menstrual products are already exempt from state sales tax because of a state law that took effect in 2018. The cities of Denver and Aurora also exempt menstrual products from city sales tax.

The city plans to send letters to grocery stores, convenience stores, big box stores and online retailers to notify them of the change.


Such a brave city council.

But, but but, we found out this year that men have periods, too.

I want to know which orifice the tampon goes in?
