Fort Smith alcohol tax jump start date to be reconsidered, but already included in 2021 city budget

FORT SMITH, Ark – Fort Smith is set for an alcohol tax increase, but not without further consideration before it goes into effect. City Administrator Carl Geffken requested an October study session for a 5% increase to the city’s supplemental alcohol tax before it is slated to go into effect in December 2021. This increase would bring the city’s supplemental alcohol tax to the maximum fee of 10%, bringing liquor to a 33.75% tax, wine to a 23.75% tax and beer to a 19.75% tax when purchased in a restaurant or bar.
