An Increased Alcohol Tax Could Be Coming


 Michael DenDekker, a democrat from Queens is pushing the proposed increase in taxation on alcohol. DenDekker’s bill would add 3 cents to a can of beer, 2 cents to a glass of wine and 10 cents on single shots of alcohol. DenDekker explained that the new taxes could generate $260 million in taxes, which would be used for addiction prevention and recovery.
