Utah: Businesses that hire nude or partially nude workers pay an extra 10 percent for all services.

Alabama: 10 percent tax on decks of cards with 54 cards or less.

Nevada: You actually get a free deck of cards for each tax return you file.

Connecticut: Adult diapers are taxed, but children's diapers are not taxed.

Maryland and Virginia: Each time a toilet is flushed in a home, it's taxed.
