This is out of sheer curiousity...
Are newspapers taxable??

In Michigan they are not. And, here I get taxed some places and not others For example, I have purchased a Sunday paper at 3 different locations in Cornelius. I was taxed by 2 and not by 1. The Rite Aid on Torrence Chapel taxes you and the BP at Westmoreland and 21 taxes you. The Texaco at Catawba and One Norman does NOT tax you (therefore, I usually stop here!).

I am just wondering what the law is.

^haha... I wonder about this too. I usually buy it from one of the coin boxes -- no tax there, just a straight 50 cents.
