Nevada becomes the 10th state to get rid of the pink tax

By  | 

Nevada (WILX) -- Nevada is now the 10th state to eliminate what's called the pink tax.

The pink tax is tax that is added to sales on feminine hygiene products.

Voters approved the change during the midterm elections with 56.9% in favor.

Supporters argue that those types of products are a necessity.

But some critics are worried that granting that tax exemption could result in less revenue for schools and local government.

The change will go into affect in Nevada on January 1st, 2019.
