The Taxes are Coming, The Taxes are Coming!

The Taxes are Coming, The Taxes are Coming!

There’s an old saying that goes, "the only guarantees in life are death and taxes." Often humorous and told by those who have lived decades, it isn't entirely inaccurate. When it comes to those who enjoy the relaxing and incredible effects of vaping, taxes may just be creeping around the corner.

For years, people who have been all for public health have been in disagreements that increasing the taxes on tobacco would deter individuals from buying cigarettes. To make everyone healthier, the higher-ups in government thought it was better to attack someone's wallet rather than they attack their lungs. It was met with either public support or public shrugging. Those that didn't smoke were in favor of this, for it would be more complicated to purchase cigarettes, and those that do smoke knew they would just have to make each cigarette last longer. But the taxation has since shifted beyond public health efforts, and into the lives of those who are trying to kick the habit completely.

When a smoker kicks the habit, and moves to vaping, states across the country lose money from taxes they would be making from a pack of cigarettes. Since 1998, the government has brought in over $500 billion from cigarette taxes. That's no small amount of money. With vaping coming onto the scene and other tobacco-less products (although patches and gum are way less effective), the government is starting to see a dent in taxation- their wallets so to speak. Seeing a significant loss in money, especially with people that stop buying cigarettes all together, the government is shuffling with a way to make that back. In 2016, more than 20 states considered implementing a cigarette or other Tobacco Products (OTP) tax to all vaping products (devices, tanks, coils, e-liquids, etc) on the market. The purpose of doing this is to recoup money they are losing. 

Even though the original increase in taxation seemed like a great way to help smokers kick their awful habit to the curb, the influx in vapers has cause a little problem with the government, as they aren't getting the amount of tax revenue they once were. Who is to pay for the loss? You guessed it, vapers and other tobacco-less users. If you are a vaper and don't relish the idea of being taxed because the government is greedy, make sure you are active in protesting against it. Speak to your local congressman, or state rep and voice your opinion. You quit smoking to do your body a favor, there's no reason why your wallet should have to pay for it now.
