Suit: Yuengling owes Philly $6.6M in back taxes



Published: Wed, February 6, 2013 @ 12:05 p.m.

POTTSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — The city of Philadelphia says the company that makes Yuengling beer owes $6.6 million in back taxes.

The city filed a lawsuit in the common pleas court on Jan. 30, saying Pottsville-based D.G. Yuengling & Son Inc. has failed to pay business-related taxes, fees and penalties since December 2008.

Yuengling’s chief operating officer, David A. Casinelli, tells the Republican-Herald of Pottsville he believes it has to do with a dispute the brewery has had with the city over the business-privilege tax. The company sells its products in the Philadelphia area through an independent distributor.

A spokesman for Mayor Michael Nutter declined comment.

In recent months, the cash-strapped city has been cracking down on unpaid taxes in an attempt to generate more revenue.
