Philadelphia booze tax collection standard?

Bacchus101 | Nov 22, 201012:14 PM

A few times I have had this tax added on to my bill. Other times I had thought it was in the elevated price of the drink. Is there a standard here? What has your experience been? Just recently I was paying high prices for cocktails and attributed this to the upscale venue, ;the call on the bottle, and the Philly tax only to find a significant figure added to the bill and defined as Philadelphia tax. Is it up to the establishment to collect this as they like, either by drink price or as an add on? Thanks for any comment on this. Just trying to understand this and set expectation going forward. Thanks
