    What taxes apply to spirits?
    There are two types of spirits taxes: a spirits sales tax and a spirits liter tax.

    Spirits Sales Tax (SST): This tax is based on the selling price of spirits in their original package.
    Spirits sales tax rate paid by the general public: 20.5%
    Spirits sales tax rate paid by on-premises retailers such as restaurants, bars, etc., on their purchases from distributors, distillers, etc.: 13.7%


    Spirits Liter Tax (SLT): This tax is based on the volume of the spirits being sold in the original package.
    Spirits liter tax rate paid by the general public: $3.7708 per liter
    Spirits liter tax rate paid by on-premises retailers such as restaurants, bars, etc., on their purchases from distributors, distillers, etc.: $2.4408 per liter

    So I just bought a 12.99 dollar bottle of cheap vodka for 22.25 :grr::scott::nutpunch:

    I thought our Texas "sin tax" (tobacco and booze) was outrageous, but those are some crazy numbers....
