Many states are trying to add extra taxes to e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes are not cigarettes and should not be taxed the same.
We fight unfair tax hikes at the federal, state, and local levels and we inform our members so they can do the same. We believe:
- Adults should not have to pay heavy taxes to buy legal products.
- E-vapor products are not cigarettes and should not be taxed the same way.
- E-vapor products should not be subjected to additional taxes, often referred to as excise taxes. They are already subject to state and local sales tax.
Which States Have Extra Taxes on E-Cigarettes Today?
Prior to 2018, eight states plus Washington, DC and Puerto Rico had extra taxes on e-vapor products. In 2018, New Jersey enacted a new $0.10/mL tax on e-vapor products, and Washington, DC increased its e-vapor tax to 96% of the wholesale price.
Vaper Rights opposes excessive and unfair taxes on e-vapor products, like the Washington, DC tax. It nearly doubles the cost of all e-vapor products. We will continue to oppose similar unfair taxes.
