Many out-of-state websites that facilitate online sales in Michigan would have to collect and remit the 6 percent sales tax under legislation approved unanimously Wednesday by the state House.

This year Michigan Legislators are trying another time to end the so-called 'tampon tax' in Michigan. They're hoping more women in the legislature will give the bill a better chance of passing this year.

Every year in Statehouses across the country there are bills that lawmakers call zombies—different versions of a bill they reintroduce year after year that just won’t pass.

This year, one of Michigan’s returning zombies, is a bill to end the so-called ‘Tampon Tax.’

The Michigan Department of Treasury says a 6 percent sales tax will soon be applied to all companies with no physical location in the state.
