The city of Philadelphia will be implementing a soda tax that part of Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) will recognize and part of it will not. This is because two thirds of the airport is in Tinicum, while the rest of PHL – where a majority of the terminals are – is in Philadelphia.
However, the tax is reportedly not a sales tax, as it will be paid by distributors who provide dealers with beverages, according to Lauren Hitt, city spokeswoman.
According to Philly.com, the new beverage tax, which the city plans to use the revenue to pay for prekindergarten and other programs, is reportedly set to go into effect starting January 1.
