Taxing your groceries? It’s on the ballot in November
BURIEN, Wash. -- What you spend on groceries could be impacted by a big vote in November. Washington Initiative 1634 wants to block local cities from raising taxes on certain foods, like Seattle did with sugary beverages. 'Yes! To Affordable Groceries', the group leading the campaign, is already running ads on local television. In one spot, a mother is seen shopping. She says, "I definitely can't afford new taxes on groceries."
