New Hampshire lawmakers are set to vote whether to raise the beer tax by a dime.
The New Hampshire legislature is considering a bill that would raise the excise tax on beer by ten cents per gallon, a 33 percent increase.
I’m curious about excise tax. Why does Massachusetts have this? This “extra” tax is supposed to go to our roads here in the Commonwealth, but does it really? Roads in our cities and towns are a disgrace and we’re paying an extra excise tax on top of what we’re already paying in outrageous property taxes. If we are going to continue to allow cities and towns the ability to charge excise why can’t it be mandated that this money be allocated for roadway improvements only? – Jim
