Effective October 1, 2019, the State of Maryland will be imposing an Excise Tax on all tobacco products sold by online retailers to Maryland customers. See Maryland House Bill 1301. Please note that this excise tax is in addition to the Maryland sales/use tax already imposed on tobacco products sold to Maryland customers.
The Maryland Excise Tax rate will differ depending on the type of tobacco product sold: - Premium cigars will be taxed at 15% of the wholesale price, which would equate to an average retail price increase of 7-9%. - Pipe tobacco will be taxed at 30% of the wholesale price, which would equate to an average retail price increase of 15-20%.
