The so-called “Stache Act” is based on a paper by Dr. John Yeutter from Northeastern State University titled “Mustached Americans and the Triple Bottom Line: An Analysis of the Impact of the Mustache on Modern Society and a Proposal for a Mustached American Tax Incentive.”
In the paper, Dr. Yeutter examines the environmental, social, and economic impact of the growth and maintenance of labia secuculas (Latin for “lip sweaters”). He concludes that “stached” Americans should be provided an itemized deduction for expenses exceeding 2 percent of their adjusted gross income.
Some of the expenses listed in the paper include:
- Mustache and beard trimming instruments
- Mustache wax and weightless conditioning agents
- DVD collections of “Magnum P.I.” and “Smokey & the Bandit”
- Burt Reynolds wallet-sized photos
