Your file was reviewed by a Blue Ribbon panel of message board FOG's. We all agreed you were ok, except Mr. Jones. He didn't like the cut of your J.I.B. The tax will be dropped when Jones is satisfied with his vig. Sorry. The rules are the rules.

Have to take it up with your state government. Evidence indicates it's been going on for a while

And those are the taxes that are hidden in plain sight, not the ones they really hide.

That post is from 2006, and I know I was never charged until the past few orders. Newer changes are on their website:

Excise Taxes
As you may know, certain states have recently begun to impose excise taxes on tobacco products sold by online retailers. [Cigars International] collects excise taxes on your purchases as required by law. Please note that such tobacco excise taxes are in addition to applicable sales or use taxes, if any.

Maryland

Effective October 1, 2019, the State of Maryland will be imposing an Excise Tax on all tobacco products sold by online retailers to Maryland customers. See Maryland House Bill 1301. Please note that this excise tax is in addition to the Maryland sales/use tax already imposed on tobacco products sold to Maryland customers.

The Maryland Excise Tax rate will differ depending on the type of tobacco product sold:

- Premium cigars will be taxed at 15% of the wholesale price.

- Pipe tobacco will be taxed at 30% of the wholesale price.

For more details on the Maryland Excise Tax, review the law here.

Michigan

Effective January 1, 2022, the State of Michigan is imposing an excise tax on all cigars sold to Michigan customers. Cigars are taxed at 32% of the wholesale price, with a maximum excise tax of fifty cents ($.50) per cigar.

For more details on the Michigan excise tax, please review here.

Ohio

Effective October 16, 2019, the State of Ohio will be imposing an Excise Tax on all tobacco products delivered to Ohio customers. See Ohio Code 5743.62 Please note that this excise tax is in addition to the Ohio use tax already imposed on tobacco products delivered to Ohio customers.

The Ohio Excise Tax rate will differ depending on the type of tobacco product purchased:

- Most premium cigars (and all pipe tobacco) will be taxed at 17% of the wholesale price, with a maximum excise tax of fifty three cents ($.53) per premium cigar.

- Most little cigars with a filter or tip will be taxed at 37% of the wholesale price.

For more details on the Ohio Excise Tax, review the law here.

Pennsylvania

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania imposes an excise tax on “small cigars” shipped to customers in Pennsylvania. Specifically, small cigars weighing 4lb per 1000 or less, not in carton packs, and not containing 20 to 25 sticks per pack are taxed at $0.13 per cigar. (Please note, we cannot ship to Pennsylvania customers any small cigars weighing 4lb per 1000 or less packed in cartons that contain 20 to 25 sticks per pack).

Loose or pipe tobacco is taxed at 55 cents ($0.55) per ounce, with a minimum excise tax of 66 cents ($0.66) per package.

Rather than pass the entire tax on to our customers, we have decided to charge only 30 cents ($0.30) per ounce. As a courtesy to our customers, Cigars International will pay the remaining 25 cents ($0.25) per ounce excise tax imposed by Pennsylvania.

South Dakota

Effective January 1, 2022, the State of South Dakota is imposing an excise tax of 32% of the wholesale price on all cigars shipped to customers in South Dakota. SD continues to prohibit the shipping of all other tobacco products.

For more details on the South Dakota excise tax, please review here.

North Carolina

Effective July 1, 2022, the State of North Carolina is imposing an excise tax on all cigars sold to North Carolina customers. Cigars are taxed at 12.80% of the wholesale price, with a maximum excise tax of thirty cents ($.30) per cigar.

For more details on the North Carolina excise tax, please review here.

Virginia

Effective July 1, 2022, the Commonwealth of Virginia is imposing an excise tax on all retail sales of cigars and pipe tobacco to Virginia customers. Cigars are taxed at 20% of the wholesale price, while pipe tobacco is taxed at 10% of the wholesale price.

For more details on the Virginia excise tax, please review here.
