Stop the Vermont Beverage Tax
Once again, some people are talking about a tax that could double the price of some grocery items.
Vermont rejected a beverage tax in 2011, 2013, and 2014. Now, only a few weeks into 2015, and some folks are pushing once again for new beverages taxes on Vermont families.
This time there’s talk of a whopping 2¢ per-ounce tax on grocery items like sodas, juice drinks, sports drinks, teas, and other beverages.
It’s a tax that could double the prices on some beverages and increase prices on others by 60 percent or more!
Vermonters don’t need another tax to know what’s best for our families. That’s why we’re coming together to say “NO.”
NO to new taxes on sodas, juice drinks, sports drinks, teas, and other beverages.
NO to higher grocery costs for those who can least afford it.
NO to taxes that won’t accomplish what is promised.
