Iowa Representative Mary Mascher is sponsoring HF 733, which would dramatically increase the taxes on premium cigars, and remove the current $0.50 tax cap, that works to support local Iowa small businesses. The bill would cause the tax on cigars to go from 50% to 55.6%. This would lead to a decrease in demand from your customers of over 28%! This means that consumers will buy around 28% less products if this new tax level is passed. This drastic change will shock every shop customer in Iowa! 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 this egregious tax down! We have until Apr 19, 2022 to make sure this bill doesn’t get passed, so make sure your voice is heard and take action today!
