Philly Bev Tax is here
All eyes were on the city of Philadelphia on Jan. 1, 2017 when it became the first major U.S. city to impose a 1.5 cents-per-ounce tax on soda and other sweetened beverages. Although beverage distributors and retailers opposed the move, the tax was expected to generate a whopping $386 million in revenue over a five-year period to support pre-K, community schools, parks, recreation centers, and libraries in and around the city. The Philadelphia Department of Revenue brought AB&C on board to help spread the word about the new law, communicate to distributors, dealers and consumers how it would affect them, and to position it in a positive light to the community.
