Idaho One Of Two States To Still Tax Girl Scout Cookie Sales
Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - Idaho is one of only 2 states that still taxes girl-scout cookies.
The tax on a box of Girl Scout cookies is less than a quarter. But each year that adds up to nearly 152-thousand dollars out of Idaho Girl Scout pockets.
But now a bill that would kill the sales tax on their cookies is now headed to the house floor.
Girl Scout volunteer lobbyist Julie Hart says the extra cash would be used to expand programs, particularly scholarships.
