Sales Tax Fix Signed in Pensylvania

Share Post

Signed by the Governor, House Bill 262 provides that Pennsylvania breweries will pay 6 percent sales tax on 25 percent of the retail sale to its consumer, rather than on every dollar of beer sold directly to consumers via taprooms, tasting rooms, and brewpubs. This formula treats the sales tax assessment as if it is being assessed on the wholesale price amount, similar to what restaurants, taverns, and grocery stores pay. The change will affect a brewery’s sales to consumers for both on and off premise consumption.
