Sin tax to be divided equally between Browns, Indians, Cavs

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Browns, Cavaliers and Indians will evenly split Cleveland's sin tax, the city announced Monday.

Each team will get $4.6 million per year for the next 20 years. The money can be used to upgrade the stadiums and arena where they play.

The sin tax, which will run through 2035 after being renewed by voters in 2014, is 4.5 cents on a pack of cigarettes, 1.5 cents on a beer and six cents on a bottle of wine.
