CHICO, Calif. - Thanks to a new law that went into effect on New Year's Day, consumers will not have to pay taxes on diapers or menstrual products for two years.
Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 92 into law in June as part of his state budget.
The bill bans sales and use tax on menstrual products like tampons, cups, and sponges until December 2021.
The ban also applies to diapers for children and toddlers.
If you did pay sales tax for your feminine products or diapers that you bought after January 1st this year, you can request a refund by bringing your receipt to the retailer. Make sure you also bring a copy of the notice from the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration. You can download it here.
