Speak Out Against Federal Tobacco Tax Hikes!

As if taxes on tobacco products weren’t high enough, now some federal lawmakers are pushing for massive new taxes on certain tobacco and nicotine products. Some members of Congress want to at least double the tax on cigarettes and cigars, while increasing the tax on dip to more than $2 per can. For adult consumers looking for alternative nicotine products, Congress is considering a proposal that could add a $1.15 per pod tax to vapor and would tax alternative nicotine products, like nicotine pouches, as high as $4.35 per can.

President Biden pledged not to raise any taxes on individuals making less than $400,000 per year. But 98% of all tobacco taxes are paid by tobacco consumers making less than $400,000. Higher taxes at the cash register take money directly out of people’s pocket at a time when they can least afford it.
