Tell Politicians in Santa Fe: Tobacco Tax Increases and Flavor Bans Hurt Local Businesses
On top of that, the New Mexico State Legislature is considering a proposal to increase the state cigarette excise tax by as much as $1.50 to $3.16 per pack, with similar increases on dip. A 90% tax increase is too much!
