New York State Imposes a 75% or 95% tax on E-Cigarettes

In the article written by CASAA (Consumer Advocates for Smokefree Alternatives Association ), talks about New York City taxes on electronic cigarettes rose dramatically.  It forces store owners to start online business to avoid paying that much taxes.

If enacted, AB 8594 / SB 6610 would:

  • Redefine "tobacco products" under New York tax law to include any product containing nicotine.
  • As a result, this would impose a 95% tax on the wholesale price of all e-cigarette products containing nicotine.
  • Raise the tax on smokeless tobacco from 75% to 95%.

If enacted, SB 4365 / AB 7106 would:

  • Redefine "tobacco products" New York tax law to include electronic cigarette cartridges in the State's definition of "tobacco products." (If this bill moves forward, e-liquid will almost undoubtedly be added)
  • As a result, these e-cigarette products would be taxed at 75% of wholesale price.
