senate Bill S. 1179

Making Tax Cuts for Bourbon Storage Available Sooner

Argument in favor

Giving people tax deductions up front for aging bourbon will allow more people to afford to age bourbon for their business.

Multi-year business storage costs are a deductible expense in almost any other business. Why not here?

It's a treasured national export. Let's not make it harder to produce.

Or better yet simplify the tax code for everyone, personal and business, no deductions & low rates.

Argument opposed

This bill is just disguised tax cuts directed at people in one state: Kentucky. Kentucky already produces most of the world's bourbon, there's no need for more incentives.

Alcohol is a drug, and it sells itself, I don't care to subsidize it. I feel mo sympathy for the alcohol industry.

We've had this problem since before the beginning of our country. The government must realize that not allowing its citizens to choose how to tax their favorite beverage is a gross mistake and only leads to protest.
