What seems like a cruel April Fool’s Day prank for smokers is actually a harsh reality today as the single largest federal tobacco tax increase ever has combined with a state tobacco tax hike to send prices skyrocketing.
The federal tax on a pack of cigarettes jumped 62 cents today, and the state tax doubled from 30 cents to 60 cents.
The result is a 92-cent increase per pack, which translates to cartons of cigarettes costing around $10 more in the Commonwealth.
