Alcohol Retailers Fight New Mass., USA, Tax

Donnerstag 6. August 2009 von htm

A new Massachusetts tax on liquor, wine and beer went into effect this weekend, but the state’s alcohol sellers are working to reinstate a longtime sales-tax exemption on alcoholic beverages. As part of a budget-balancing plan, state lawmakers raised the Massachusetts sales tax from 5 percent to 6.25 percent, and also applied the tax to alcoholic drinks along with other goods and services. Backers expect the alcohol tax to raise up to $80 million in annual revenues for the state. (Source: Join Together, 8/4/09)
