“A few examples of the differing standards:

▪ New Jersey knitters pay sales tax on yarn purchased for art projects, but not on yarn earmarked for sweaters.

▪ Texas taxes sales of plain deodorant at 6.25 percent, but imposes no tax on deodorant with antiperspirant.

▪ Illinois categorizes Twix as food but Snickers as candy, because Twix has flour and Snickers does not.”
