four cents

Area Man Finally Aware That a Meal Tax in 2011 Would Almost Cost Him a Hershey Bar in His Childhood

Easton, Massachusetts resident Michael Freese recently discovered that the town’s meal tax cost him an extra 4¢ on his $5.75 hamburger, reports the Enterprise News. Freese was under the impression that only “New York and Seattle and California had that.”

While Freese is probably aware that this extra 4¢ would get him 80% closer to a Hershey Bar when he was growing up, he can also take comfort that in this day and age it will get IRS Agents off your back. [Enterprise News]
