The Seattle City Council passed a sugary beverage tax in 2017. It went into effect at the beginning of this year. So far, they've made over $10 million and they are super happy about the sugar tax. According to reports, "58 percent of people polled approved of the tax (51 percent of approval came from low-income individuals, and 62 percent from high-income earners).

From foxbusiness.com


In the first six months, Seattle has collected more than $10 million from its tax on sugar-sweetened beverages.


Officials are now optimistic that the tax could generate more money this year than anticipated.

The unknown is whether the tax has changed buying habits.

A survey conducted just before the tax took effect has found that most Seattle adults supported the measure, though the tax was less popular among black and Asian respondents and people with lower incomes, according to the Seattle Times.
