Really weird and crazy U.S. state taxes and deductions

  • ​11. Minnesota: Fur tax


    Staying warm with a fur coat will apparently cost you big in Minnesota. If an item of clothing is comprised of three times more fur than the next most valuable material used to make it, businesses are required to pay a 6.5 percent tax on whatever they receive for the sale, shipping and other charges. And this extra cost in likely passed on to customers, as well.
