Law | Philadelphia Proposes Cigar Tax

Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love has no love for cigar smokers. Despite the state operating with no tobacco tax, the city recently passed a new tax on cigarettes to be used toward schools. This time around the city is gunning for cigars and other tobacco related products.

According to a report on NATO (National Association of Tobacco Outlets) the city is looking to tax cigars at the rate of 36 cents per stick. While this may not seem to be a lot to some, one can look at states such at Massachusetts which started at 15%, moved to 30% and now stands at 46%.

No date for a hearing has been set and he full proposal can be read below.

Philadelphia is home to 1.5 million residents over 141.6 square miles and was founded in 1682.
