Hawaii Considers Inflation-Based Alcohol Tax Increase

Share Post

S.B. 3275 seeks to increase alcohol tax rates to reflect inflation since 1998 (when rates were last set), with the draft beer rate increasing forty-seven cents to $1.01/wine gallon and the rate on beer other than draft increasing eighty-two cents to $1.75 /wine gallon. The bill further provides for adjusting rates for future inflation.
