Default More Texas Tobacco Tax Woes

I was so jazzed about Social Smoke's new tobacco. I was so psyched about their new flavors. I was thrilled by the 25% discount code...

Then I went to checkout with 750gs of Social Smoke Tobacco...white peach, baja blue and monster...and read that in addition to the $40 odd bucks for the tobacco (after discount), the $10 odd for shipping, I'd be billed !!!!$45!!! in tobacco tax.

Sucks...I won't be smoking Social Smoke

According to their shipping info...looks like TX. But who knows, might be OK. Anyone ordered from them before?

And yes, I hope an out of state vendor picks it up for us poor TX folks. Make sure you write your reps about this crap tax!

Only problem is if an out of state vendor buys them to sell out of state they will also have to pay a tax, not the same that we the consumer pays, but a tax nonetheless. and so it will probly cost more then starbuzz base price from out of state vendors.

BUT that would still be a lot less then the tax us texans are forced into paying!...so John I hope your reading this and try some SS tobacco soon bro! haha

I'm telling you guys, be patient. You will be happy with the outcome. And because I don't know where that vendor is at, I will be patient like I was told to be.

I can feel your pain. It's making things very difficult for us when we buy locally.

Tax on hookah tobacco gets increased all over the world it seems. Here we have about 59 euro tax per kilo (around 80 dollar) and then 19% VAT over the total price. So in Holland we pay 5,80 euro (7,88 dollar) per 50 gram.

Hookah-Shisha does not charge the tax. Wonder why?

Does hookah-shisha not charge it up front? Or at all? I havn't ordered from them in a long time.

I think if you order via Texashookah, you don't see it charged (except 8.25% sales tax) and then you get a call/e-mail if it applies to you saying, "Yo, the Tax Man cometh!"

Damn. I hope they do not pass that 750% tax hike on pipe tobacco. The tobacco companys need to get those damn lobby people in thre to stop this crap or they are going to go out of business. I guess they dont care.

With the individual state taxes then the Federal tax hike. There are going to be a lot of companies out of business in the next couple years.

Doesn't really matter. Phillip Morris is and will be fine, and starbuzz will be as well.

The pipe tobacco tax will kill all independent tobacco related businesses, but not the one's that sell marlboro like candy.

So what exactly are the terms of the tax? Is it only on tobacco that is being purchased by residents or is it on anybody that does business with a tobacconist that is based in TX?

it's a state sales tax, so you only get taxed if you live in texas.
