Cook County Resumes Collection of Sweetened Beverage Tax

August 1, 2017 Alex Samuel

Cook County Illinois will resume collection of their sweetened beverage tax after a judge lifted a temporary restraining order and dismissed a lawsuit filed by the Illinois Retail Merchants Association preventing implementation of the tax. The sweetened beverage tax consists of a $0.01 tax on each ounce of sweetened beverage sold at retail. Retailers are required to begin collection of the tax starting August 2, 2017. The Illinois Retail Merchants Association is considering several legal options including filing an appeal or an amended complaint.
