Best Practices in Designing Local Taxes on Sugary Drinks
This US-based guide helps communities design sugary drink taxes for the maximum health benefit. Specifically, it describes what type of tax to employ, what beverages will be subject to the tax, at what rate each beverage should be taxed, what businesses are required to pay the tax, and lastly, where the tax proceeds should be allocated.
ChangeLab Solutions and Healthy Food America collaborated on an update of this guide, titled A Legal and Practical Guide for Designing Sugary Drink Taxes.
