Faden, Senior Legislative Attorney
Bill 10-13, Taxation - Excise Tax - Disposable Carryout Bags
Bill 10-13, Taxation Excise Tax - Disposable Carryout Bags - Scope, sponsored by
Councilmembers Berliner, Floreen, and Rice, is scheduled to be introduced on April 23, 2013. A
public hearing is tentatively scheduled for June 18 at 7:30 p.m.
Bill 10-13 would limit the excise tax on carryout bags, enacted in Bill 8-11, to those used
at food stores. A food store is defined as
retail store where food consists of more than 2% of
gross sales by dollar value. The tax would continue to cover bags used at food stores for non
food items. Bill 10-13 would also repeal the tax on plastic food take-out bags.
