URGENT Ask Your Senator to vote Yes on HB 1177 to exempt diapers from sales tax.

One of the best things we can do to make North Dakota a Sanctuary for Life is to repeal the sales tax on diapers.

Diapers are a health necessity and the tax disproportionately hurts poor families the most.

  • Twenty-one states do not tax diapers
  • Two of our neighboring states do not tax diapers
  • North Dakota exempts adult diapers from sales tax, but not infant diapers

Sample Message: Please vote YES on HB 1177. It is pro-life, pro-family, and pro-child.

Did you know?

About 44,000 North Dakota residents are under three years of age.

Eleven percent of them live in families earning less the 100% of the federal poverty level. Twenty percent live in families earning between 100% and 200% of the federal poverty level.

The sales tax, being regressive, disproportionately burdens these families. Many of them will not benefit much from income tax reform.

Eliminating the sales tax on diapers for these families could save them the equivalent of a month’s worth of diapers per infant, or more.

Let's help these families.
