[FONT=Times New Roman]As a private citizen you can only import tobacco from another country in the European community. When you order the tobacco you must report the amount of tobacco to the Tax Agency. They will charge you $170 / kg (2.2 lbs?).[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman]Enligt Tullen och Skatteverket kan man som privatperson bara importera tobak fran ett annat EU-land. Nar man bestaller ska man rapportera det till Skatteverket som kommer att ta ut en avgift/skatt pa 1560kr/kg. Ingen tullavgift inom EU. [/FONT]
[FONT=Times New Roman]Bestaller man tobak utan att rapportera det kan man bli atalad for skattebrott och sakert ocksa behova betala skatten pa 1560kr/kg.[/FONT]
