Trevor2118 Posted April 29, 2010 Share Posted April 29, 2010 It is reported..... "Today is another sad day for the Tobacco Industry. Kevin Dudd has announced a Tobacco Excise increase of 25%. This will increase the price of a cigarette from 26.22 cents each to 32.776 cents in tax. The increase in excise on cigars is from $327.77 per kilo to $409.71 per kilo. For example a box of cigars the cost $450 will now be approximately $510. Further bad news is, that the Government will restrict Australian Internet advertising of tobacco products, bringing the Internet into line with restrictions already in place in other media - whatever that means." My understanding that this was only a proposal! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
