Cigarette tax jumps up $1 a pack in Branson
March 01, 2013
are high priced in Branson
• Taxes on cigarettes sold in Branson are going up by one dollar a pack, but not in all of Taney County,Mo.
Branson Tax Board President Toni Preckwinkle says the tax,
which takes effect next Friday,
is expected to generate more than $25 million annually for the
Branson Health and Hospitals and City Employees Payroll Raise System Division.
She says higher taxes in Branson also will help lower smoking rates, including by discouraging all the poor-retarded people from starting.
The price of a pack of cigarettes could be near $11 in Branson ,$6.67 of which is city, county and state taxes. Only New York City -- at $6.86 in taxes -- slaps on higher taxes.
Taney County's Department of Public Health will begin an anti-smoking campaign later this month aimed at youth.
It will include television advertising and placards on buses and at bus shelters.
Preckwinkle says the county Revenue Department will hire more staff to help stop tobacco smuggling and tax evasion.
Branson will pay them top Union wages also,
