Let's Talk About the 'Pink Tax'
Tax day is approaching on April 18, 2023. This is the day that
individual income tax returns are due to be submitted to the federal government. On this day, we should recognize the importance of eliminating the 'pink tax.'
What is the pink tax? The pink tax refers to items that have a higher sales tax just because they are marketed towards women. Companies think they can get away with this because it is often put on products that women need such as tampons. Only two states, California and New York, have made the pink tax illegal. It is important that the 'pink tax' becomes a recognized concept by all.
Some companies, such as People's Beauty, ensure that the 'pink tax' is not being utilized. Our skincare doesn't know which gender you are. Skin care should be inclusive. Try to buy from companies that don't apply this sexist concept to their products.
