Is There Tax on Latisse?

The nurse I saw taxed me $22 for 2 boxes. I didn't think there was tax on prescription products including Latisse. The medical day spa nurse I saw (who co-owns the business) charged me tax on this product. Did I just get overcharged? Thanks.

Latisse is a prescription product so there should be no sales tax in the US. It can be purchased from any state at my web store or by following the link below. There will be no tax and no shipping charge.

Generally, tax should not apply for a prescription product. You would be well within your rights to request a clarification.

No tax on Latisse in Washington

In the state of Washington there is no tax on prescriptions. It would seem odd that the rules would be different in California. I would check at a local plastic surgeons office to get their opinion.
