From link: “Some tax experts say that adding the word “generally” may allow for the manufacturers and importers to pass that same 2.3% tax on to consumers through elevated prices at the retail level. At least one source at a major American manufacturer — who asked to remain anonymous because they’re not authorized to speak publicly on the matter — said the company will be forced to increase prices.
“If our profit margin is 4%, and we’re hit with an added 2.3% charge by this tax, more than half of our profit is instantly gone,” the company source said.”

This a good thing if they can charge it directly on receipts, then it is visible and not hidden. Otherwise prices go up and it looks like the seller is just trying to make more $$$.

I wish there was a way of putting the actual amount of corporate tax a product has in its price on the label.
