Online wine sales from the producers website are also subject to a $15 minimum per bottle tax at retail outlets as well as online sales.
“What we found after 카지노 쿠폰six months was it’s still not too bad,” Brown says. “In terms of the price per bottle, a lot of folks 청주안마do have higher levels of consumption. We don’t have that much in terms of actual cost per bottle so we don’t see how it’s a big concern or how it could be detrimental or anything else. It’s still relatively low. You’ll probably get the wine back at a higher price than if you did a 10-year or 20-year loan.”
Some of his findings may surprise those in wine-producing countries, where the cost of wine is considerably more affordable, Brown notes.
For example, for $1, the price of a bottle of wine will generally run up to $18 to $25, and with prices increasing on the shelves of stores such as Whole Foods, one might think a $1-per-bottle tax would be a big deal.
But Brown says that’s not the case.
“I would argue that it’s still not too much. I did find a couple bottles of wine that were $15, $18 or $20 less at Costco (than at a store like Redbox) so I don’t think that means anything necessarily. It is a relative trend. There’s definitely a trend.”
“I think it’s still fairly high in the Midwest right now,” adds John Pomeroy, the chief economist for the Wisconsin Retailers Association, which represents distributors of wine. “People still have no idea what they’re paying for beer, wine or spirits.”
“You’re still paying taxes on a bottle of wine and you’re still being exposed to an additional level of alcohol,” he says에스엠 카지노. “That is the thing that’s not helping the consumer, it is the price per ounce of alcohol that’s going up as time goes by.”
When you price wines at a per-ounce price, they would be much more expensive
The $15 minimum tax has yet to be finalized by the Legislature, and if it’s implemented, consumers will likely be affected.
While some retailers have already passed these tax increases on to consumers, it remains to be seen if they’ll actually be implemented.
The Wisconsin Retailers Association estimates that most of Wisconsin’s wine distributors will be hit with the new tax, and says they’re doing everything possible to minimize the impact.
