WRITTEN BY Jill Barnas

Feminine hygiene products are considered luxury items, not necessities, and are not exempted from sales tax. The current tax in Missouri on such products is 4.2%, however, HB 406, HB 699, HB 793, and HB 899 propose to bring the tax down to 1.2%.

Low-income menstruating individuals of all ages struggle to afford feminine hygiene products. Single-use disposable feminine hygiene products are selected by agencies for resource-poor environments and do not typically offer reusable products which may be more cost-effective long-term.
