Hi Miichelly ~

The Indiana Department of Revenue offers an extensive list of Sales
Tax Information on its website, here:

The articles on these pages mention specific categories or instances
for exemption from Indiana sales taxes.

The only exemption listed as exempt are "complimentary toiletry items
such as soap, shampoo, tissue paper, plastic cups and any other items
not reusable" purchased for use by "People Engaged in the Business of
Renting Rooms, Lodgings or Accommodations".

The above link is in .pdf format, so you will need the Adobe Acrobat
reader to read it.

Search terms used -

   - Indiana sales tax exemption

Search used on Indiana government pages -
   - sales tax exemptions + personal hygiene products

Now you have me wondering which states, if any, offer sales tax
exemptions on personal hygiene products!
