Truth Through Combat

Cigarette Taxes

I wanted to get exact figures on cig taxes across the nation. First, a breakdown of state taxes. You’ll notice that NY State ranks eighth in the nation with a tax of 1.50 per pack. NC ranks 50th, with a tax of 05 per pack. Link: http://www.taxadmin.org/fta/rate/cigarett.html.

A quick web search shows that as of early 2004, the federal cigarette tax was at .39.

I have not been able to find out if Erie County or any cities are allowed to tack on taxes on top of the state tax.
