Is there a tax on soda in PA?

The new soda tax would be on top of the 8% sales tax that already applies to soda in Pennsylvania. Soda is classified as food, which is tax exempt in some states, but not in Pennsylvania. The measure is expected to be signed by Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney. Kenney originally proposed a 3-cents-per-ounce soda tax.

What products are not taxable?

These foods and beverages, however, are not exempt from tax:
  • candy and confectionary;
  • alcoholic beverages;
  • soft drinks, fruit drinks, sodas, or similar beverages;
  • heated or prepared meals (sandwiches, salad bars, etc.); and.
  • food or beverage sold for on-premises consumption.
