Soda taxes have made headlines across the country\, from Seattle to West Virgin ia. Here in D.C.\, city council members are considering an 80 percent incr ease in the District’s taxes on cigarettes and vapor products. Pennsylva nia has expanded casino gaming.

What do all of these proposals have in common? An increasing relia nce by states and localities on “sin” taxes to raise revenue.

Traditionally\, sin taxes have been an easier political s ell for lawmakers looking for ways to balance their budgets. But are these taxes working as advertised?

Join us at the Tax Foundation offices on February 15th at 12 noon\, or on Facebook Live at 1 2:15 PM\, for a lunch event discussing the budget and behavioral implicati ons of leaning on selective taxes to fund the government.
