Say NO to the Proposed Alcohol Beverage Tax
Posted On: Mar 07, 2011

   Tax bills HB121 and SB168 introduced in January in the Maryland State Legislature would raise alcohol beverage taxes by more than 790%.

   The hike would translate to price increases for the consumer, resulting in lost sales and lost jobs that are directly provided by alcohol industry producers, distributers and retailers.

   The cost of a case of beer will go up $2.41. It will cost $1.01 more for a 1.5 liter of wine. The price of a 1.75 liter of liquor will increase by a whopping $3.94. 

   Bottom line: This so-called "Dime a Drink" tax increase proposal would threaten the jobs of all employees in the alcohol/liquor distribution industry.

   The tax proposal will most likely be in the mix until the end of the Legislature session which will adjourn on or around April 11th. We need you to contact your legislators right now (it will only take about 30 seconds) and urge them to vote NO on HB121 and SB168 that would raise fees on beverage alcohol and result in the destruction of our jobs. Here's how:

1. Go to savemymdjob.com/take-action
2. Enter your zip code, email address, mailing address, and name (to verify you are a constituent)
3. Click "Send Email Letter"
