States: It’s time to get this done. If you won’t act, we’ll see you in court.

Half of the population gets periods. That’s a biological fact. And yet, 34 U.S. states still charge a sales tax on period products because they don’t consider them necessities. Since the tampon tax only applies to people who menstruate, this is not just unfair. It's also a form of discrimination.

In June, thousands joined us in warning their states: Eliminate the discriminatory tampon tax, or Tax Free. Period. will mobilize legal action to remove it as a matter of equality under the law.

Now we have assembled a coalition of lawyers to fight to eliminate the tampon tax in every state.

And we need your voice to amplify this movement. Join us in bidding the tampon tax farewell, once and for all.

We're demanding tax-free periods by Tax Day 2020.
States, the countdown is on.
