Maryland Cigar Tax Bill Likely Dead
Posted: March 24, 2011
A bill that would have raised the cigar tax in Maryland to 95 percent of the wholesale price appears to be dead after a Senate committee voted to mark the bill as unfavorable.
Senate Bill 654 called for Maryland's other tobacco products tax, which includes cigars, moist snuff, and roll-your-own tobacco, to be raised from 15 to 95 percent (not to exceed $3 per cigar), an increase of 533 percent. The bill also called for an increase in the tax on cigarettes and little cigars.
On Monday the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee voted 12-1 to label the bill as unfavorable, meaning it will be seen on the chamber calendar under the heading "Unfavorable Reports" and will most likely be rejected.
