PA Craft Beer Tax Bill Was Signed & Will Take Effect Come Summer
A new Pennsylvania tax law on craft beer was just signed.
According to patch.com, the governor of PA, Tom Wolf recently signed the bill to put this tax into effect this June.
So if your a lover of PA's craft beer, you might just be forking over a little more money for your local brews come summer time.
So what the bill is basically putting into effect is that you'll be taxed by multiplying 25 percent of all retail sales by the local sales tax, says patch.com.
So here is a little breakdown of the actual percentages, because that could come off a little confusing.
Patch.com says " In most Pennsylvania counties, the sales tax is 6 percent, so the tax is 1.5 percent. In Allegheny County, which includes Pittsburgh, the tax is 1.75 percent."
