On Jan. 1, Vermont changed its tax code, making beer purchases subject to Vermont’s 6 percent sales tax.
It’s meant to be a tax on alcohol, but not all stores understand that.
Tim Krebser, who said he drinks a six-pack of Busch NA a day, has registered a complaint with the state that he is being charged tax on the beer. He’s been told that he’s correct he shouldn’t have to pay the tax.
Now he just has to convince his local market.
