Why isn’t it the law to add sales tax to the intial price of any product? It’s so stupid to me. Every time I go shopping I try to calculate how much I’m spending but it’s basically impossible with the addition of sales tax. I feel like it also creates a mentality that ‘the government is taking our money’ by making us see the price increase every time we pay at the cashier. Life would be so much simpler, and honestly, I feel like it falsely deludes people into thinking they’ll spend less money. I don’t see why we do this.
