USA: Beer Industry Tax Break Bill Wins Majority in House

Montag 28. September 2009 von htm

Legislation that would cut beer taxes charged to brewers has garnered 218 cosponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives, enough to get the measure passed in the 435-member House, according to the Beer Institute. The bill, H.R. 836, would roll back the federal excise tax on beer to 1991 levels, cutting taxes on big breweries like Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors from $18 per barrel of beer to $9 per barrel and the tax on smaller breweries from $7 per barrel to $3.50 per barrel.
