Philly Beverage Tax

The Commonwealth Court has expedited the appeal on the Philadelphia Beverage Tax ruling. Briefs will be due in February and March and oral argument will be scheduled in Pittsburgh during the Court’s April 3-7 session. Unless the Commonwealth Court rules otherwise, the Beverage Tax will remain in effect. PRLA has signed on to an amicus brief opposing the tax.
