Map shows state cigarette tax rates in effect now and those that will go into effect through October 1, 2009 (DC and CT on 10/1/09). The four states that have not increased their cigarette tax rate since 1999 or earlier are marked in bold. Currently, 28 states (including DC) and Puerto Rico, the Northern Marianas, and Guam have cigarette tax rates of $1.00 per pack or higher; 15 states (including DC) have cigarette tax rates of $2.00 per pack or higher; and two states (CT and RI) have cigarette tax rates of $3.00 per pack or higher. The state averages listed above, do not include Puerto Rico (with a population larger than those in 20 states) or any of the U.S. territories (such as Guam). The major tobacco states with extensive tobacco farming and, often, cigarette manufacturing, are NC, KY, VA, SC, TN, & GA. Federal cigarette tax is $1.01 per pack. Not shown are the special taxes or fees some states place on cigarettes made by Non-Participating Manufacturers (NPMs), the companies that have not joined the Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) between the states and the major cigarette companies. Some local governments also have their own cigarette taxes, such as Chicago (68¢), Cook County, IL ($2.00), New York City ($1.50), and Anchorage, AK ($1.30). The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention estimates that smoking-caused health costs and productivity losses total $10.28 per pack sold.
