NC Tax Action Alert!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Governor Mike Easley wants to target smokers with a 45-cent per pack cigarette tax increase over the next two years – 35-cent per pack increase this year and 10 cents next year. If the tax is adopted, smokers will have to pay $5.00 in state excise taxes alone on every carton of cigarettes they purchase.

Take action to stop this increase by calling 1-888-564-6273 toll-free!

The cigarette tax advantage North Carolina has enjoyed for so many years over surrounding states will be gone. North Carolina will not only lose tobacco purchases by out-of-state smokers, but all the other things they buy while in our state. This smoker tax increase poses a danger to every citizen in North Carolina.

The message Governor Easley seems to be sending is – “taxing smokers is so nice, I’ll do it twice.”
