The Coca-Cola Co. spent US$100,000 on lobbying the US government in the first half of this year, according to a recent filing.

The company spent the money lobbying the treasury department on international tax reform issues and other related matters. The declaration was made in a disclosure form posted online last month.

Since 1995, under federal law, lobbyists are required to disclose activities that could influence members of the executive and legislative branches and report the financial sum of any lobbying during the first six months of each year.
