Ax the Bev Tax

Who We Are

Ax the Bev Tax is a broad coalition of concerned citizens, business owners, restaurants, movie theaters, and community organizations actively opposing Philadelphia’s 1.5 cents-per-ounce beverage tax.

What We Believe

Philadelphia’s working families are struggling to afford everyday items and local businesses are losing revenue. Many Philadelphians are traveling beyond city limits to purchase goods, which takes business out of the city. We believe city officials should provide a fairer plan without harming Philadelphia families and small businesses.

It’s time to Ax the Bev Tax!

It's time to take a stand and tell the City Council members who voted for this tax to Ax The Bev Tax! Contact these members and let your voice be heard!
