Good News For Your Christmas Tree–Govt. Delays Tree Tax

Recently, the Federal Government had announced they were creating a Christmas Tree Promotional Board, through the Department of Agriculture; and a .15 tax on every live tree sold from lots who sell or carry more than 500 trees…

Well, thanks to the outrage over this idea,  the Feds have announced they have “delayed” the tax.  The new Christmas Tree Promotion Board (huh?) was supposed to help market, and develop the Christmas tree industry. While Administration officials said the National Christmas tree board was “self imposing” a tax on itself to raise funds for awareness and promotion (similar to what the Dairy Board did with the Got Milk? campaign),  where else would costs be passed onto?   At any rate,  the Christmas Tree Tax has been delayed, and hopefully, gone for good.
