Pennsylvania: Urge the State Senate Not to Include a Cigar Tax in the Budget Plan!
Yesterday, the state House approved a budget plan for 2014-15 fiscal year. While this version of the budget does not contain any new tax increases, rumors are circulating that some state Senators are considering the inclusion of an Other Tobacco Products (OTP) tax on cigars. Final budget negotiations will likely continue through the weekend in order for the legislature to meet the Monday deadline. However, the budget could be finalized as early as tomorrow.
