Candy Tax

OK, who’s next on the tax hit list? Ah, yes. The children.

Several states, including Illinois, Washington and Colorado, now have a tax on candy.

The sticky part, apparently, has been defining “candy”: Lawmakers in Washington have narrowed it down to any product comprised of sugar or other sweetener, along with fruits, nuts and other flavorings.

However, in order to not discriminate against the blueberry muffin or banana nut bread, they added the modifier that if it has flour, it is not candy.

So guess what? That means a Kit Kat is not candy.
