Tax Sugar Sweetened Beverages


Action Areas

  • Socioeconomic Factors


Taxes increase the price of soda and other sugar sweetened beverages by adding either an excise tax (a fee per ounce) or a sales tax (a percentage of the product’s price) to the current price. The funds generated by this tax may be used to make more healthy foods affordable or for other public health ventures.
