Oppose Premium Cigar Tax Increase in Maine

Maine State Representative Joyce McCreight has introduced HP 1039 which would raise the level of taxation on all tobacco products, and specifically would raise the OTP (Other Tobacco Products) tax on premium cigars, from the current rate of 43% to 86% of the wholesale price. Now is not the time to raise taxes of any kind, given the economic affects of the national pandemic. Please send the message below to your legislators, today!
