April 23, 2021: One of Olga and Emilie's favorite pastimes, is digging into the stories, systems, and assumptions behind Vermont's legislation. Enter S.53, a tax bill that began its life in the state Senate to remove the 6% sales tax on menstrual products. After much deliberation in the House, S.53 also includes an update on corporate income tax, removes an exemption for cloud services and products, and removes the tax on military retirements.
