Taxing Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Has Potential to Yield Significant Results

Taxing sugar-sweetened beverages a penny per ounce has the potential to reduce consumption and generate significant revenue, finds a new study by the Rudd Center published in Preventive Medicine. By instituting a national penny-per-ounce tax on sugar-sweetened beverages, researchers estimated that the tax could generate revenue of $79 billion over a five-year period, reduce consumption by 24%, and reduce daily caloric intake from sugar-sweetened beverages from 190-200 calories to 145-150 calories.

The paper was coauthored by the Rudd Center’s Tatiana Andreyeva, PhD, and Kelly D. Brownell, PhD; and Frank J. Chaloupka, PhD, Economics Department, University of Illinois at Chicago.

The revenue calculator, developed in collaboration with Dr. Chaloupka, estimates potential federal, state, and city revenues by tax per ounce and type of beverage.
