Massachusetts Considers State Soda Tax MAY 10, 2017
MassLive.com reports that a proposed bill in Massachusetts would tax drinks between five to 19 ounces that contain five or more grams of sugar. Drinks would be taxed at one cent per ounce and a drink with 20 or more grams of added sugar would be taxed at two cents per ounce. The Massachusetts Beverage Association opposes the bill, stating that the tax does not address the real causes of obesity and related conditions.
