Ohio Tax Increase

Got this via email today.


Dear Ohio Customer:

While we continually strive to minimize the tax burdens on the products we offer, legislators sometimes take action that runs counter to the interests of constituents like you. This is one of those times. Effective October 16, 2019, the State of Ohio will be imposing an Excise Tax on all tobacco products sold by online retailers to Ohio customers. See Ohio 5743.62 . Please note that this excise tax is in addition to the Ohio sales/use tax already imposed on tobacco products sold to Ohio customers.

The Ohio Excise Tax rate will differ depending on the type of tobacco product sold:
Most Premium cigars (and all pipe tobacco) will be taxed at 17% of the wholesale price, which would equate to an average retail price increase of 8-11% with a maximum of fifty two cents ($.52) per premium cigar.
Most Little cigars with a filter or tip will be taxed at 37% of the wholesale price, which would equate to an average retail price increase of 25-30%
For more details on the Ohio Excise Tax, please consult our website’s shipping policy, or review the law here.

Finally, if you have any open orders, held orders, or backorders, please contact us immediately so that we may assist you in modifying your order for shipment prior to the October 16 effective date. Please note that backorders, held orders, auto ships, and club orders shipped after the effective date will be subject to the Ohio Excise Tax.

Assume that email is from a vendor. Im sure I'm not up to date on happenings in my wonderful State, but haven't heard anything about this.

Want to know what it is where I live ?


Current tobacco tax rates in Yukon
Cigarettes: $0.30 per cigarette.
Other tobacco: $0.30 per gram.
Cigars: 130% of taxable price per cigar. (The taxable price per cigar is 130% of manufacturer's or importer's selling price.)
Last updated on February 28, 2019.


Notice what's missing ? A maximum cap. So while you will NEVER pay more than $0.52 in additional tobacco tax, my jurisdiction has no max cap. Meaning, if a retailer were to buy a cigar for $10.00, then there's $13.00 of tax added on top of that.

Consider yourself lucky. For me, I can only buy cigars when I'm travelling (for obvious reasons).
