    I knew this would happen!!! I woke up turned on the TV and saw some bad news for pipesmokers. Looks like they are going to start a little crackdown on pipe tobacco because some roll your own products relabled themselves as pipe tobacco: Sounds like the Obama Administration is going to close...

    Hello All, We all know about the SCHIP Fedral Taxes. Well, to be honest, we took a bite more than we can swallow. We bought a lot of cigars to save on the taxes, and now its our turn to pay these huge invoices; hence the inventory reduction ! We are offering Rocky Patel Decade cigars at...

    Good Afternoon Friends: Many people are still in the dark on what cigar manufacturers are going to do with this tax. While many in the industry are telling us that most are having price increases on their cigars and passing the tax on to the consumers. With our prices going up every day, I can...

    I would have started the thread in Tobacco Legislation to begin with but I do not have the privilege to access that forum. The thread was moved to Tobacco Legislation and now I can't reply to it. :hurt:
  5. Tobacco Legislation
    I was told by a reputable B&M owner that new tax should not apply to stock that is already in the possession of the store. I've also read here that this is true. Some places will try to use it as an excuse to raise their prices on their current stock while others will only do it on stock they...

Now I've stopped buying and I'm jonesing for a deal or an auction or a review.....anything!! I've still...

    Hey, MAYBE SCHIP was just a big joke! Maybe Obama loves this day. Maybe he's just a big kidder after all. I seriously doubt that, although he certainly likes to play the fool!!

    I got my daily email from CI on their specials and the Perdomo Tierra del Sol is on the special. I clicked the link, was forwarded to CI's web site and greeted with this disclaimer copied and pasted ditectly from their site: Note: due to SCHIP taxes, the price of Tierra del Sol received a...

    I think I'm good on cigars now. I can go about three years or so if I smoke one a day. I just need to get a couple bags of pipe tobacco and I can hunker down and wait for some sane politicians to get in office. Hmmmm... that could take longer than 3 years....uh-oh.

    Will the new SCHIP Tax create a crackdown on "illegal" imports of Cuban Cigars? I could see a temporary crackdown coming....

    There has been a lot of questions about SCHIP and the imposed taxes. Here is the actual SCHIP section on cigars and pipe tobacco, AS IT IS WRITTEN and a link to the entire document. SEC. 701. INCREASE IN EXCISE TAX RATE ON TOBACCO PRODUCTS. (a) Cigars.--Section 5701(a) of the Internal...

    I'm a very happy camper right now. Camacho Coyolar Puro Super Toro I love these. Unlike any cigar that I have smoked - strong and full, yet sweet, complex, and delicate tasting, in a manner of speaking. I think of it as the "venison of cigars." :D

  17. Tobacco Legislation
    I had written him before the vote urging him to vote no and explaining my opposition to the tobacco tax increases. He's a GOP-er, so I figured he might be opposed to the measure anyway. Nope! Voted for it! So I wake up this morning with a message on my answering machine from the guy, telling me...

    With the new tax coming up in April I'm trying to stock up on sticks. It seems that the ones that will go up most percentage-wise are the cheapie yard gars. My budget is also strained a bit. I do most of my net buys with CI. Can I get some advice on some of the cheap twofer bundles or anything...
