Drinks & Taxes 2009 v12: Indiana

Indiana has a plan to fund sports stadiums and other economic development projects by increasing the tax on beer wine and spirits.

Indiana House Bill 1604 is being called a painless way to raise an estimated $34 million, doubling what is currently collected.

The bill calls for taxes on beer and wine to go up about 1 cent per drink and the tax on liquor to increase about 2 cents a drink.

The other way that Indiana could increase the revenue generated by alcohol sales is to lift the restriction of sales on Sundays.
