Merry Christmas. The Government Is About to Tax Your Christmas Tree - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 11/17/14

11/17/14

Transcript (may appear different than audio):  

Leave it to the federal government to be the Grinch who ruined and taxed Christmas. A new “fee” as the USDA is calling it goes into effect this year and you’ll be paying $.15 cents more on your Christmas tree this year than previous holiday seasons. Of course, they’re saying this is not a tax, but a fee to help fund Christmas tree research and marketing, but what ever they wanna call it, if I am required to pay more for something because of the government, I call that a tax. Merry Christmas and Taxing New Year. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
