Blueberries tax

The production of wild blueberries in the Maine is a subject to a 3/4 of a cent per pound tax.
This tax is applied to every pound of wild blueberries sold, on top of regular taxes.
People who grow, purchase, sell, store or works with them have to pay this tax because dealing with wild blueberries is one of the most important agricultural industries in that state.
This way Maine collected over $680,000 of Blueberry Tax In 2012. All of the Blueberry Tax money goes to the Wild Blueberry Commission of Maine. This receiver gives 30 percent of the funds to the University of Maine to supplement blueberry research. In case when people tried to pick, transport or sell bootleg wild berries – they might be caught and placed in jail.
