The Governor of Michigan recently signed into law House Bill 5267 and Senate Bill 153. These bills provide an exemption from sales and use tax on the sales of feminine hygiene products. Feminine hygiene products are defined as “tampons, panty liners, menstrual cups, sanitary napkins, and other similar tangible personal property designed for feminine hygiene in connection with the human menstrual cycle.” Previously, these items were taxable unless they were medicated and had a drug facts or active ingredients label. The state has confirmed that this law is set to take effect in February.
