I usually ask my loving mother to cut my hair because I’m too conservative (read: cheap) to pay a beautician. But I forgot to make that request when my parents visited in December/January. Three months without a hair cut is long enough.
I went to a salon today and paid $16 for a haircut. The receipt doesn’t indicate any taxes, so I can’t decide whether to add any to this week’s tax bite. I suspect that Hair Cuttery pays some kind of tax to Aunt Virginia. If it were a sales tax, the tab would be 67 cents.
I’ll let Aunt Virginia off the hook this time, but color me skeptical that I managed to get a haircut without being taxed.
