house Bill H.R. 767

Should Taxes on Beer Vary Based on the Amount Brewed?

Argument in favor

The current tax structure for beer production makes it hard for small craft breweries to compete with large producers. Reducing those taxes would help small breweries grow, create jobs, and brew cheaper beer for consumers.

I don't believe a tiered structure based on production volume to be inherently unfair. We also proclaim a desire to help the little guy succeed in the world. Making the tax code help smaller companies grow will lead to more companies graduating to the higher tier of taxes anyway. It's a win, win!

Obviously if you make a million gallons easily, you should pay more then a company that's strikes to get a hundred thousand

Argument opposed

It would be wrong to change the way that the tax code treats varying amounts of beer production without reforming how other beverages like cider are taxed. Besides, the federal government needs all the tax revenue it can get.

Simplify the tax code, don't further complicate it. A flat tax would help this too.

Gasoline isn't taxed by the amount of gasoline that is in each gallon, so why should beer?
