H.R. 4439, The Tobacco Tax


I got an email from Pipesmagazine.com letting the community know that the government is proposing a huge tax increase on tobacco products.

H.R. 4439, the Tobacco Tax Parity Act of 2010 was introduced on January 13, 2010 and would raise the tax on pipe tobacco 775% from $2.8311 to $24.78 per pound.

Now, in fairness, I can understand a slight tax increase, even though I don’t agree with it. But this?! It’s just unspeakably ridiculous.

There’s a petition that everyone can sign and have emails and/or letters sent to our congressmen and senators. Follow the link below.
