Ohio legislators are considering an increase on the states cigarette excise tax by 48%, to $18.50 per carton, over the next 2 years.
Enactment of a $6.00 per carton increase would mean a carton of cigarettes in Ohio would be subject to more state excise tax than surrounding states.
Increasing state tobacco excise taxes would hurt your business and it’s time to act!
