Ohio Lawmakers Pulling the Plug on the Sales Tax of Feminine Hygiene Products.
Friday, December 7, 2018

Women in the state of Ohio will be saving some money on a tax cut that’s rolling in Ohio’s state capitol.

New legislation, which flowed easily through the Ohio House of Representatives this week marks plans to remove sales tax from tampons and other feminine hygiene products.

It’s called Ohio House Bill 545. Not paying taxes on the products used generally only by women could amount to rough savings of $600 for women who generally purchase the products over several decades. The premise of House Bill 545 is simple: why should women be taxed on products that men don’t need?

The “pink tax” exemption is headed to the Ohio Senate, and if it passes, it will head to the governor’s desk for final approval.
