$800 million wine, beer, sin tax to slam small business

October 24, 2018 --


By Oregon Small Business Association,

The Oregon Governor Kate Brown and Oregon Health Authority are seeking to raise $830 million in new sin taxes next year by paying higher taxes for their cigarettes, beer, and wine.   The tax would be be massive hit to consumers pocketbook and would seriously hurt local grocers — hurting smaller family owned grocers worse than bigger grocery chains.   Oregon’s famous wine industry would also be hit.  Even worse, the colossal sin tax may not work as detailed in our 2018 report, Sin taxes hurt everyone but the user.

The OHA’s draft 2019-21 budget, a 2,050-page document reported by Willamette Week, shows that the state may increase sin taxes to cover the state’s rising Medicaid costs.
