The American Civil Liberties Union of Rhode Island has filed a lawsuit against the state's tax division over a sales-tax exemption.
Rhode Island’s break for those who sell their own “original and creative work” unfairly excludes nonfiction writers, the ACLU argues.
It filed the suit on behalf of the Association of Rhode Island Authors, which numbers about three hundred members, and three individual authors: Steven Porter, Lucie Contente, and Paul Caranci.
Be sure to check out the Providence Journal’s article on the suit for some particularly interesting background on Caranci.
