They are taxing Christmas trees now. Sure there is always sales tax, but now the Obama Adminitration is imposing a 15 cent tax on all fresh cut Christmas trees. Thing is, how is the executive branch creating such a tax by decree? I thought taxes went through Congress first?
(From The Foundry)
To pay for the new Federal Christmas tree image improvement and marketing program, the Department of Agriculture imposed a 15-cent fee on all sales of fresh Christmas trees by sellers of more than 500 trees per year (7 CFR 1214.52).
