If the proposed legislation comes into being roughly how much will we pay for our american snuff. As sad as i am to hear of these taxes i can't skip breakfast and am curious as to whether any new pricing structure has been worked out based on these tax increases.


  • Not yet. Well, at least not here. First it has to pass and be signed. If and when that happens, you can be sure every retailer/distributor/wholesaler will be re-evaluating there prices.
  • Thanks Tom just wondered if you had a ballpark figure and weighing up the pros and cons of stocking up. Hope this isn't going to be disasterous for your business or anything like that, i don't fully understand all the implications of these changes but it doesn't sound good.
  • Stocking up will do no good. The tax is a 'floor' tax and applies to anything in stock.

  • That was the point I was trying to make in another post, I doubt anyone who sells RYO set aside $26.82 or whatever for every lb of tobacco they had in stock. That could potentially be an enormous figure. I don't suppose there's a law to protect a business from something so obscure and disproportionate occurring.

    End users should stock up...
    Meanwhile you can always move shop out of the US :P. Hope the tax increase doesn't pass.
    Also does this affect international orders ?
  • Well i am a snuffer in the UK so stocking up may be good for me like you say but i think Toms in trouble either way if this applies to existing stock. Maybe the retailers ought to put the prices up now to soften the blow. I for one would certainly prefer to pay a bit more rather than risk losing access to american snuff altogether. Don't like parting with money any more than anyone else but thats how i feel on this subject.
  • This may be good for Tom and snuff. Snuff being the most inexpensive form of tobacco use. The snuff trade may just boom.

    The one that I see thing being the killer is the pipe tobacco tax and the cigar tax. That will kill many tobacco shops.
  • sure! so an underground tobacco market is not so far fetched now is it?
  • The cigar tax is only 40 cents a piece, it's the lowest tax of all the tobaccos.
