Today's word: PLAYING CARD TAX
Theme for this fortnight: TAXES
        There’s a reason why Alabama is not known for its casinos, and this tax may be it. Alabama is the only state in the union to issue a 10-cent playing card tax for decks of cards purchased within the state.
        When compared to Nevada, a state that issues free decks of cards with every tax return filed, this tax seems quite silly. Nevertheless, Alabama citizens enjoy the revenue that is produced for highways and playgrounds. There is plenty of information on where an official playing card tax stamp can be purchased, but no explanation about the tax.
