|Subject:||PA Brewery Tax Reform|
|In the near future, I will be introducing legislation regarding the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue Tax Bulletin Sales and Use Tax 2018-02.
As many of you may be aware, on July 27th, 2018, the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue put out a tax bulletin requiring our Pennsylvania breweries to collect the state’s 6% sales tax on every portion sold (pints, growlers, etc.). The application of this tax is set to go into effect July 1st, 2019. I strongly believe that this taxation will negatively impact our local breweries, while stifling a growing industry that provides thousands of jobs for our local communities.
My legislation will seek to address this taxation to protect our local breweries.
Thank you in advance for consideration of my legislation.
Introduced as HB1549
