Time For A Tax Break On Books

I probably shouldn’t ask this question because it will give some money-hungry politician an idea, but why is it that the government taxes book purchases (80 cents more added to our tax bill today) and not trips to the movie theater?

This isn’t an argument for taxing movie tickets, mind you. But it is an argument for not taxing books, particularly the educational books we use to home-school our three children. Kids need to be reading more of them and watching fewer movies. Tax law should recognize that.
