Taxin' the Booze

New, 13 comments

Supervisor John Avalos is trying to tax booze. He thinks it'll generate revenue during these tough economic times for our city. The fee would be applied at wholesale, and then passed down to us, the drinkers. No finalization on the amount, but the idea of 5 cents for a beer, and larger fees for wine and hard liquor are being thrown around. [SF Examiner]
