PA Supreme Court to take up appeal in Philadelphia Soda Tax case

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Tuesday granted the appeal in Williams v. City of Philadelphia, the case working its way through the state courts challenging the legality of the beverage tax levied by the City of Philadelphia.

 

The court, in granting the appeal, limited review of the issue to the following question: “Does the City's Tax violate the Sterling Act, 53 P.S. § 15971, which prohibits Philadelphia from imposing a tax on a transaction or subject that the Commonwealth already taxes?”
