Efforts Aim to Wipe Tax Slate Clean for Distilleries

Efforts Aim to Wipe Tax Slate Clean for Distilleries

The federal government is taking a close look at a special fee charged to distilleries that make hand sanitizer.

The fee amounted to as much as 14-thousand dollars in some cases.  On Thursday a tweet from Brian Harrison, head of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said businesses who stepped up to help during the COVID-19 crisis shouldn’t be punished with a special tax in reference to the fee issued by the FDA this past Tuesday. 

It remains unclear whether the HHS can and if so will overturn the FDA’s fee decision.
