The Infamous Green Sales Tax Holiday Is Here
It sounds like a monster. All sales tax holidays are scary, but for this one they specify the color. It makes it seem so much more palpable and alive.
The green sales tax holiday is exceptionally bad because it distorts both the timing of sales, as all sales tax holidays do, and the choice of which products to buy. The tax is lifted only on appliances that have been approved as earth-friendly by the Environmental Protection Agency. I hope nobody is expecting a slight diversion of sales for one week to save the planet!
