As we know, the city of Seattle passed its new 1.75 cents per ounce tax on soda and other sugary drinks in June 2017 and made it effective January 2018. Almost one year since to the day, the city is boasting soda tax receipts of over $16.9 million – almost $2 million in revenue beyond original estimates, and they project a $21 million take in the fiscal 2019 city budget. As more cities view soda/sugary drink taxes as a untapped revenue stream, we can expect still others to consider imposing them, and the cycle will continue. Expect to see other soda tax proposals in the coming months.
