Australia’s tampon tax is dead

Australia adopted a Goods and Services Tax, or GST, in July 2000. Under these rules, tampons and other feminine hygiene products were subject to GST – causing a lot of complaints.

Last week, Australia announced that they will exempt feminine hygiene products from the GST. The exemption will take effect on 1 January 2019.
