The Legislature on Monday night narrowly approved
boosting the state's tax on cigarettes by an additional
$1.60 - to a national-high $4.35 a pack. Factoring
in city and federal levies, a single pack is taxed
to the tune of $6.85, which translates to a counter
price of $12 - $13 for NEW YORK.
I GUESS THERE TRYING TO SAY
SAVE MONEY AND STOP SMOKING!!!
