Vermont “Vitamin Tax” on Dietary Supplements Defeated

Share This Article

vermontThe proposed “Vitamin Tax” failed in the Vermont legislature last week. This is a significant victory for consumers and natural health advocates. Many thanks to the large numbers of our Vermont supporters who responded to our action alert.

Not only did the residents of Vermont defeat this foolish tax on supplements. They also sent a message to legislatures around the country that dietary supplements are not a good place to look for new revenue. It is a well established principle that what we tax we get less of.
We need more preventive healthcare, not less. Dietary supplements are a critical part of preventive healthcare and are already extremely expensive for most people. Taxing what is good for us will just lead to vastly greater state and federal spending in the long run.
