Tell Politicians in Albany: Cigarette Tax Increases and Coupon Bans Hurt Local Businesses

Politicians in Albany are considering a proposal that would increase excise taxes on a can of dip by $1.96, with similar increases on moist snuff, snus and cigars. If passed, a can of dip would be subject to a total of $4.36 in state excise taxes alone.

On top of that, lawmakers are also considering an outright ban on the use of coupons for cigarettes, dip, and other tobacco products as well as all vapor products.

An unnecessary, unfair tax increase coupled with a tobacco and vapor coupon ban could have a direct, negative impact on your business and your bottom line. They would cause the price of tobacco and vapor products to soar and could encourage many adult smokers and vapers to turn to other sources to purchase their tobacco products, driving sales down and jeopardizing local New York businesses like yours.

Your business employs New Yorkers and contributes to our local and state economy. Tell your legislators to oppose this unnecessary and unfair tax hike that would hurt local businesses.
