Ugly as Sin Tax

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Nevada recently considered taxing prostitution, which would mean a change in rhetoric for those satirists who describe sex as the only tax-free vice left in America.

Meanwhile in Minnesota, state legislator Phyllis Kahn proposed a tax on hair transplants and Botox injections. She would also like to slap sales taxes on laser hair and scar removal, laser treatment of varicose veins, cosmetic dentistry, and cosmetic surgery such as nose jobs.

Essentially this amounts to a tax on the ugly, not greatly dissimilar from Nevada’s tax on prostitution, which soaks those not attractive enough to acquire sexual favors without an exchange of cash.
