NEW $3 BEVERAGE TAX IN PHILADELPHIA…HAPPY NEW YEAR DEMOCRATS :)

Posted on

A $3 Philadelphia Beverage Tax, spearheaded by Mayor Jim Kenney, takes effect on January 1, 2017. The 1.5 cents per ounce tax will cause beverage products to double in price.

“Items such as juice drinks, sodas, teas, sports drinks and fountain sodas will no longer be affordable for many Philadelphia residents,” said David McCorkle, PFMA president and chief executive officer. “This unfair tax will really hurt Philadelphia consumers, who are already challenged to pay for groceries.”

Nearly 4,000 products will be subject to the tax. For example, a gallon of Turkey Hill Lemonade will go up from $2.68 a gallon to $4.60 a gallon, and a 64 oz. bottle of Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice will increase from $2.68 to $3.70.
I expect New York City or San Fran but not Philadelphia…Happy New Year Philadelphia Democrats!
