California – New Law Temporarily Bans Diaper, Tampon Sales Tax

As of Jan. 1, 2020, Californians won’t have to pay sales tax on diapers or menstrual products for two years.

The temporary ban is thanks to Senate Bull 92 , which was signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom last June as part of his state budget.

The bill, authored by Assemblywomen Loran Gonzalez of San Diego and Cristina Garcia of Bell Gardens, bans sales and use tax on diapers for infants, toddlers, and children, and also on menstrual hygiene products like tampons, menstrual cups and sponges, and sanitary napkins.
