Washington Exempts Feminine Hygiene Products Beginning in July

Jun 3rd, 2020

Effective July 1, 2020, Washington will exempt feminine hygiene products. "Feminine hygiene products" means sanitary napkins, tampons, menstrual cups, and other similar products designed specifically to catch menstrual flow. Those who pay tax on exempt feminine hygiene products after July 1 can seek a refund from the seller. The purchaser can request a refund directly from the state if the seller will not provide one.
