NEW ARIZONA LAW WILL PREVENT INDIVIDUAL LOCALITIES FROM IMPOSING EXTRA TAXES ON PARTICULAR FOOD ITEMS
The legislation is being described as a ban on sugary drink taxes, but it’s actually much broader than that. HB 2484 provides that any tax imposed by a city or town on the retail sale of food “must be applied uniformly with respect to all food, and an additional tax or fee differential may not be assessed or applied with respect to any specific food item.” That means no sin taxes on hamburgers, or pizza, or ice cream (just to name a few possible examples), either.
