Legislation was introduced at the end of February in the Michigan House that would levy an excise tax of four percent applicable to the bottling of water.

House Bill 5656 (“HB 5656”) is titled the:

Bottled Water Excise Tax Act

HB 5656 would impose a wholesale excise tax on corporations producing bottled water in the State of Michigan.

An April 23rd Tax Foundation article notes that no states currently have extraction taxes imposed on water bottlers.
