Interlochen Public Radio: Tax break would help micro-distillers in northern Michigan

Small distillers in northern Michigan would get a big tax break under a bill introduced in the U.S. Senate last week by Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI).

He visited Traverse City Whiskey Company on Tuesday to promote the legislation, which would lower the federal excise tax on liquor from $13.50 per gallon to $2.70.

“This allows entrepreneurs to start [in] this business, get it going and create these jobs in our local communities," Peters said.
