    I live in Chicago. Recently, on vacation, I went through Calgary, Alberta. Stopped in at a tobacconist, and was shocked at the prices. The owner told me that her prices included tax. The tax must have been about 100%, because everything was twice the price I was used to:eek:!! Do they have...

    At the end of the tax year the Tax Office sent an inspector to audit the books of a synagogue. While he was checking the books he turned to the Rabbi and said, "I notice you buy a lot of candles. What do you do with the candle drippings?" "Good question," noted the Rabbi. "We save them up and...

    HJ Bailey, a New Jersey based tobacco, cigar, and cigarette wholesalers filed for bankruptcy and is not taking new orders. Their website is gone. More than likely the CHIP tax on existing inventory weakened them to near insolvency and the economy finished them off. You can thank your elected...

    I'm a new cigar smoker and I live in Ohio. I've bought a few cigars from an online company in Penn. I'm concerned about taxes after reading something online about owing state tax on the smokes you buy online. I haven't seen this discussed much so I didn't give it any consideration when I...

    there is a new bill proposed in Nebraska which would raise the cost of cigs another $1. They hope to raise $62 million for something. They figure 8000 adults will quit smoking and 15,000 children wont start because of the increase in tax. True some people may quit but i doubt that many will. As...

    From Mynorthwest.com: It is HB 2493 and SB 6443. The 500% increase is from the current 50 cent per cigar cap to roughly $2.50. $0.50 I can live with. $2.50 a stick? Nope. If internet sales hasn't killed the local B&Ms, this most certainly will...
