West Virginia State Senator Tom Takubo is sponsoring SB 635, which would dramatically increase the taxes on premium cigars. The bill would cause the tax on cigars to go from 12% to 51% of the wholesale price. This would lead to a decrease in demand from customers by over 23%! This means that consumers will buy around 23% less products if this new tax level is passed. This drastic change will shock every shop customer in West Virginia! But there is time to make your voice heard!
Sending this letter lets your legislators know how this tax will impact your business and asks them to vote down this egregious tax increase! Take action today!
