No they didn’t because we don’t live in a state that taxes those items, as I stated towards the bottom of the article.

I wrote the majority of the piece without realizing these items were taxed in a majority of states in the USA. Rather then scrap the entire thing, I added a few more paragraphs addressing the tax.

Thanks for reading and for the thoughtful response though.
