Lawmakers Propose Tax Exemption for Diapers
Joanne Samuel Goldblum with the National Diaper Bank Network recently spoke at the VISION 2014 Consumer Products Conference in Dallas, Texas outlining the silent crisis in the US today: parents are unable to afford to buy diapers for their children, so those children’s diapers are not changed as often as they should be. Illinois lawmakers are aware of this problem and are looking to do something about it. How? They are proposing that diapers (children and adults) be excluded from sales tax. Every little bit helps.
