tampons tax

The "tampon tax" bill will get rid of the city’s 4.3 percent tax on products like tampons and pads.

The Denver City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday night to remove a local sales tax on feminine products sold within the city.

The 'tampon tax' bill will get rid of the city’s 4.3 percent tax on products like  tampons and pads. Consumers will still be required to pay state taxes on feminine hygiene products.

A bill that would have removed taxes at the state level was killed in 2017. This year, the state House is considering a bill that would require local jails to provide free feminine hygiene products to women in their custody.
