United States

The state of Montana applied a $3 tax on all bachelors in the state. One of them, William Atzinger, refused to pay on sex discrimination grounds. The following year the state supreme court ruled the “bachelor tax” and another poll tax applicable only to men to be unconstitutional.[1]

Italy

A bachelor tax was levied in Italy from 1927 to 1943.
