Missouri – Lawmakers Again Seek To Lower Sales Taxes On Tampons And Pads

Missouri lawmakers are again trying to reduce the state sales tax on tampons and pads.

Under proposals by Reps. Jim Neely, R-Cameron, and Gina Mitten, D-Richmond Heights, “feminine hygiene products” — tampons, pads, liners and cups — would be taxed at 1.2%, down from the current rate of 4.2%.

The lower rate would take effect Oct. 1, and would match the tax rate charged for most foods.
