Join TaxOps’ Judy Vorndran and Stacey Roberts as they share why state and local tax is confoundingly difficult to navigate at the virtual Bottles, Brews & Buds Conference, hosted by the Colorado Society of CPAs.
Why is state and local tax so tough for spirits and brew?
There’s big revenue to be had in brew and booze and the federal government, states, and some local jurisdictions are collecting. In all, about 40 percent of the retail price of beer goes toward covering applicable taxes, costs that are passed along to consumers in the form of higher prices. The tax cost tied up in spirits is typically higher. Join Judy Vorndran, Esq., CPA, and Stacey Roberts, CPA, of TaxOps as they dig into the morass on taxing spirits, brew and wine to help you make sense of it all.
