EXEMPT MASKS, FACE SHIELDS AND GLOVES FROM THE SALES TAX

By Bob Katzen

The Revenue Committee’s virtual hearing on January 4, 2022 will also include a proposal that would exempt masks, face shields, medical gloves and smocks from state’s 6.25 percent sales tax.

“These products are in high demand and are going for record high prices,” said sponsor Rep. Tackey Chan (D-Quincy). “Exempting them from the sales tax helps keep them accessible which is especially important when we continue to encourage residents to wear masks in indoor public spaces.”
