Tell Politicians in Albany: Cigarette Tax Increases 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.
Not only is this tax increase unnecessary and unfair for your adult tobacco customers, but it could have a direct, negative impact on your business and your bottom line. It could encourage many adult smokers to turn to other sources to purchase their cigarettes, 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.
