11 Jun Louisiana: IPCPR and Allies Defeat OTP Tax Increase
This week, your representatives at IPCPR have been meeting with legislators in Baton Rouge with many of our industry partners to prevent a 5% tax increase on premium cigars and a 17% tax increase on pipe tobacco. We are pleased to report that due to our efforts an other tobacco products (OTP) tax increase has not been included in the budget plan for the 2015-2016 fiscal year. Thank you to all IPCPR members who contacted the Legislature regarding this misguided legislation. Your participation was critical to our success.
