WA State Increases Tax on Retail Liquor Purchases


 From this morning’s Seattle Times: 


The Seattle Times: Pinot grigio’s popularity proves the value of aroma
NOTE: The Washington State Liquor Control Board’s new liter tax on hard liquor goes into effect Friday. According to the WSLCB Web site, it should increase by about $1 the price of an average bottle of liquor purchased by a retail customer in a state or contract liquor store. Restaurants that sell liquor by the drink are exempted from the tax, which should not affect their drink prices.

As if we don’t already have one of the highest (if not the highest) tax on liquor already! 


The bulk of the article has some good information about Pinot Grigio.
