    I think it was at a pretty good rate, then they recently (?) added a surcharge to pay for rural doctors.

      Yeah. I live in Mass. I got tired of paying over 8 bucks for a pack of smokes. I go to the US Virgin Islands every winter...2 bucks a pack there.

          NY just raised cig taxes by 1.60 and on August 1st smokeless taxes will be raised from 46% of wholesale to 75% of wholesale. Absolutely ridiculous.

            What these taxes mean? If I bring 10 cans of snus for example to Illinois from Europe, do I have to pay taxes?

            Sorry for being newbie.

              Welcome aboard, Finland.

              I doubt you need to worry about this. Gifts are generally not considered taxable.

                I am confused about this chart, especially the Pennsylvania listing, why does it state "No Tax", when from my experience whether it was dip or snus, it was taxed either way.

                  These are additional tobacco taxes per given state in the chart, NOT the normal state tax.

                        Man..

                        This is so painful...

                        Honestly.. I would not mind the tax if I could get it locally and not have to pay 30 bucks to UPS for shipping...

                        Tax's are what we pay for Civilization, I am fine with that... while I certainly think the TAX on Snus is outrageous, and SNUS which is a HARM reducing product should have a different Tax structure- The Shipping just slaughters me..

                          If you live in a banned state, like taxachusetts, you can't even order from UPS. I don't mind the taxes, either, and I'm willing to pay them, but I can't order it anyhow because I live in a banned state. I just don't want to smoke nail coffins anymore, but I need nicotine. Why don't they just shoot us and get it over with if we're such a danger to society? Why force us to go back to smoking and put us on oxygen machines and let us die a slow and painful death?

                            Because they want our money. OK, so I answered my own question, but they want our money even if it kills us in the process. So, here's another question, who are the bad guys in this? Just because some people need nicotine, just like some people need a cup of coffee in the morning, does that make it legal to persecute us?

                                That IS interesting. I have seen similar statements. The problem we face is from the *&(^^^&%^%%$&(**&&^ anti's and they're trying to ban all nicotine and tobacco products regardless of their benefit (i.e. snus being 99% safer and helping people quit smoking). Like all fanatical groups the (*&&*#@@)($*$&&# anti's don't want to listen to or care about facts, they just want to try and scare the uninformed as much as possible (which they succeed in). And the #$&&%*@(^^#@*& politicians and groups that support them do so only because they feel guilty if someone views them as "not caring about the &$*(#$^^#&@*^%^$ children".

                                <sigh> ok I'm done lol
