Revenue Dept. will take questions on PA small cigar tax

As we have reported, Pennsylvania will begin taxing little cigars at 8 cents each beginning November 1. The state defines a little cigar as those weighing 4 lbs. or less per 1,000. The legislation has raised many questions.

Below is a message from Gerry Kupris, our lobbyist and executive director of the PA Assn. of Distributors, regarding a meeting which will be held in an attempt to answer those questions.
