PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – There are very few things we all need, and toilet paper is one of them. But did you ever look at your store receipt after buying it? One Murrysville woman did and doesn’t like what she saw.
“It’s something that we all use. We all need to buy, and I have no idea why this is continuing to occur,” said consumer advocate Mary Bach. She’s got the time, the interest and the receipts.
“That’s correct. I do have the receipts,” she said.
She sent us her receipts from the Walgreens in Murrysville that show sales tax added to a purchase of toilet tissue.
Bach took Walgreens to court and the magistrate judge in Export sided with her. She says the fix would “take a nanosecond,” but it didn’t happen yet. She just filed a complaint against the Walgreens in Penn Hills for the same issue, planning to argue in front of the magistrate judge there in March.
Bach tells KDKA’s Meghan Schiller that people can visit the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue’s website for the full list of items not subject to sales tax in Pennsylvania.
