Philadelphians Against The Grocery Tax- Philly Grocery Tax

No Philly tax

No Philly taxPhiladelphians against the Grocery Tax is a coalition of concerned citizens, businesses and community organizations actively opposing any new grocery taxes on everyday items like juice drinks, sodas, teas, sports drinks and fountain sodas. They were taking a stand because Philadelphians could not afford to pay even more at the grocery store. Join us to say No Philly Grocery Tax!

Fact About Philly Grocery Tax!

This handy document was created to dispel the myths surrounding this tax.

1.     MYTH: This Is A Soda Tax, Not A Grocery Tax.

FACT: More than 1,000 products found in grocery stores would fall under the proposed tax including teas, coffee drinks, lemonade, juice drinks, sports drinks, enhanced water, mixers and energy drinks. There is no question this tax would mean higher grocery bills for Philadelphians.

“A gallon of Turkey Hill Green Tea Sweetened current price $2.88, after the tax $6.72.” David McCorkle, Pennsylvania Food Merchants Association 4/14/16, 6ABC

2.     MYTH: This Is A 3-Cent Or 3 Percent Tax.

FACT: The proposed tax is 3-cents-per-ounce. This means the cost of many beverages would double. For example, the tax on a common 2-liter priced at $1.79 would be $2.04, more than the cost of the product. Right now a 20-can family pack costs $5.99, but tack on a new $7.20 tax and the price would rise to $13.19.

“This burdensome tax on sugary drinks – 3 cents an ounce for bottled beverages and a ridiculous 4.05 cents on fountain drinks – would devastate mom-and-pop shops like mine that survive on small margins. And because fewer people will be buying these drinks, the city won’t get the money it needs to fund these programs.” Nick Staparonas, Owner of Nick’s Famous Pizza 3/30/16 Chestnut Hill Local

3.     MYTH: This Is A Tax On “Big Soda.”

FACT: The 3-cent-per-ounce tax proposed in Philadelphia is a tax on neighborhood stores, restaurants, movie theatres and other local businesses that operate on thin margins and depend, in part on beverage sales, for their livelihoods. The tax will also put at risk local, family-sustaining jobs in the beverage industry like truck drivers and production workers.

“I would have to raise prices or this tax would have a huge effect on the bottom line,” Marlo Dilks, co-owner of P’unk Burger on East Passyunk Ave., 3/23/16, Billy Penn

4.     MYTH: This Is A Tax On The Distributor – It Can Just Be Absorbed And Does Not Have To Be Passed Along To The Consumer.

FACT: No business would be able to absorb a tax of this magnitude. Distributors will have no choice but to pass the tax on to consumers. And in fact, the legislation requires that distributors list the tax on invoices to retailers.

“It’s always going to be passed through to consumers no matter where you levy it.” Adam Finkel, University of Pennsylvania Law School, 4/13/16 Newsworks

5.     MYTH: People Will Just Switch To Products That Are Not Taxed.

FACT: People will not change their consumption behaviors. Philadelphians who have the means to travel outside the city will shift their shopping to the suburbs to avoid the tax. Lower-income families who do not own cars will be forced to pay the tax.

“I was looking at those 200 [ounce] jar Arizona things that my bodegas carry because if you are a mom, you buy it. And 200 ounces, so that’s six — that’s nine bucks, right? Nine bucks. This is what they buy at the bodega. 200 ounces of Arizona Tea. I just — it’s just heart breaking for me. What do I tell that mother? To buy 200 ounces of water?” Councilwoman Quinones-Sanchez, 4/6/16 City Council Budget Hearing

6.     MYTH: This Tax Will Fund Programs Such As Pre-K And Renovating Our Parks.

FACT: These are important programs so it is imperative they be funded with a reliable and sustainable source of revenue. Both supporters and opponents agree that the tax will drive down sales.

This makes it a declining revenue source that will not raise the funds needed to deliver on the promise of Pre-K and other programs. Philadelphians will be left with higher grocery bills but without the programs they have been promised.

“You can’t lean on a gimmick like this to sustain an ongoing important educational program.” Scott Drenkard, 3/2/16 Tax Foundation Tax Policy Blog

7.     MYTH: The Money From The Tax Will Stay In The Community.

FACT: This is a regressive tax that will disproportionately harm Philadelphians who are already struggling the most – they don’t need another tax burden.

“I do not support paying for this proposal through a regressive tax on soda and juice drinks that will significantly increase taxes on low-income and middle class Americans.” Senator Bernie Sanders, 4/21/16 Bernie 2016 Press Release

Frequently Asked Questions: FAQs

How Much Is This Beverage Tax Going To Cost Me?Philadelphians against the Grocery Tax

UPDATE: City Council has taken an initial vote to implement a 1.5% per ounce grocery tax and now they’re planning to tax diet drinks too.

If it passes in the final vote and the mayor then signs it into law, hardworking Philadelphia families will be left paying this hefty tax.

This is how that 1.5¢ would break down at your local grocery store: A 12-pack of 12-ounce soda cans could cost an extra $2.16, a 2-liter (68-oz.) bottle of soda could set you back an extra $1.02 and a 10-pack of 6-oz. juice boxes could add 90¢ to your grocery bill.

Which Beverages Would Be Affected By This Tax?

The proposal applies to any beverage with sugar as well as diet beverages – that could translate to more than a thousand beverages like sodas, juice drinks, diet drinks, energy drinks, some teas and sports drinks.

What’s The Exact Breakdown Of The Tax?

Under this proposal, beverages with sugar and diet beverages would be taxed at 1.5¢ an ounce starting January 1, 2017. That would drive prices way up – so whether you’re buying your weekly groceries, eating out with your family or grabbing a beverage at your local convenience store, you’d likely feel the impact of this tax.

Who’s Going To Pay For The Tax?

Make no mistake, this is nothing more than a grocery tax. This tax would drastically impact small businesses and consumers, who would see a large spike in grocery prices.

Who Will This Really Harm?

This regressive tax stands to hurt Philadelphia’s lower-income families and small businesses the most, burdening them with higher costs even though they are still struggling to emerge from the recession. It could also hurt retailers and restaurants, which are likely to lose sales and customers. It’s a slippery slope – this discriminatory tax is singling out beverages. Which grocery items are next?

Where Is The Money Going?

The mayor said pre-K was the reason for a new tax. Now we know a good portion will go into the black hole of city government mismanagement. This regressive tax on Philadelphians was a scheme to compensate for poor management of city funds. Hardworking Philadelphia families and small businesses were left in the dark, and now they will be left paying Mayor Kenney’s hefty grocery tax.

What Kind Of Impact Would This Tax Have On Beverage Sales In Philadelphia?

Higher taxes will really increase the prices on groceries like soda, juice drinks, energy drinks, diet drinks, sports drinks and teas. This price spike would drive customers away from Philadelphia businesses – like corner stores and bodegas – into surrounding areas. This would be a big hit to grocery and convenience store owners and their employees.

Is This Type Of Tax Applied Anywhere Else?

Yes, the city of Berkeley, CA implemented a similar tax and subsequently saw an increase in red tape and bureaucracy, losing grocery revenue as working families chose to travel to neighboring cities for their beverage purchases.

Isn’t This A Similar Plan As Proposed By Former Mayor Nutter?

It’s similar, but the proposed 1.5¢ per ounce hike could be even more detrimental. The current proposal is backed by City Health Commissioner Thomas Farley, who – in his time as the NYC Health Commissioner – attempted to go as far as limiting soda sizes.

Ultimately, that was rejected and the New York Court of Appeals stated the City Board of Health “exceeded the scope of its regulatory authority.” Now he’s trying to bring this level of government control to Philadelphia too.

This is just the start – today it’s a grocery tax. Next we’ll be told what and how much we’re allowed to eat and drink.

What Can I Do To Stop The Grocery Tax?

Make your voice heard! Call your City Council Member at (215) 647-9562 and tell them you won’t stand for this lack of transparency from your city government. Tell your friends and family about the impact of this proposed grocery tax, and encourage them to call too!

Statement on Philadelphia City Council Vote

June 16, 2016 – City Council has ignored the voices of the 58 percent of Philadelphians who oppose this regressive and discriminatory large tax on more than a thousand common grocery items. This tax is unconstitutional, and that’s why we will take this fight to the courts to defend our broad-ranging coalition of more than 30,000 Philadelphians and 1,600 businesses and community organizations.

Working families and small businesses simply cannot afford to pay this tax. And as we have seen in repeated 11th hour revelations from the Kenney Administration, the people of Philadelphia did not get the full story on where this money will go. After months of promoting Pre-K as the reason for the new tax, we learned at the last minute that less than half of the tax money will actually go toward funding pre-K. Despite the efforts of thousands of Philadelphia businesses and citizens to engage in a substantive debate on this proposal, the administration intentionally failed to provide Philadelphians the transparent process they deserved

Philadelphians Against the Grocery Tax is a broad coalition of concerned citizens, businesses owners, movie theaters, and community organizations actively opposing the city’s proposed new grocery taxes.
