NYS trying to put local cigar shops out of business

NYS trying to put local cigar shops out of business.

Starting today, October 1st, 2020....

Quote:New York State imposes an excise tax on tobacco products possessed in the state for sale at the following rates:

75% of the wholesale price on cigars and tobacco products

Like many, I buy most of my cigars online, due to the much higher cost of a b/m.  I understand they have to pay rent, electric, etc & make a living. 
So I do go to local b/m shops every now & then, to either look for something new to try or to go to an event (at least once a month or more).  In either case, when there, I buy cigars, usually at least a dozen or more.

A 75% excise tax will break the back of many of the local shops, especially during Covid times.
