Taxing Situation

State tobacco tax rates remain relatively stable in soft economy

OAK BROOK, Ill.-- So far this year, 18 states have proposed tobacco-related tax increases. This has led to much talk but not much action--except on the East Coast, where two states passed increases, and one, in an unprecedented move, even passed a decrease, leaving many to speculate about cross-border activity.

The Special CSP-NATO Guide to Tobacco Taxes offers details and maps showing:

  • State Cigarette Excise Tax Rates
  • State Excise Tax on Large Cigars
  • State Excise Tax on Smoking Tobacco & Papers
  • State Excise Taxes on Little Cigars
  • State Excise Taxes on Smokeless Tobacco
