Oppose Federal Tax Increase on Premium Cigars & Pipe Tobacco


Senator Durbin (D-IL) has reintroduced a massive tobacco tax increase as part of a bill that is otherwise intended to address maternal mortality.  Buried within S. 411, the Mothers and Offspring Mortality and Morbidity Awareness Act (MOMMA’s Act), are changes to the tax code that would treat the entire tobacco industry as cigarettes.  The result is an estimated 500% – 1000% increase on the tax for premium cigars (depending on size) and a 1650% increase on the tax for pipe tobacco!

A tax this big isn’t just lost profit. This bill will raise the costs for manufacturers, retailers, and consumers. Jobs, businesses, and ability to buy and enjoy a premium cigar will be at risk.  Take action now by letting your US Senators know that S.411 (MOMMA’s Act) shouldn’t be paid for on the back of a single industry!
