Higher Illinois Cigarette Tax Takes Effect


It’s just gotten a lot more expensive to smoke in Illinois.

 

The price of a pack of cigarettes is now a dollar higher across the state, because of the tax increase approved by the General Assembly this spring to help close the Medicaid funding gap. 

 

Tobacco stores around the state are worried that the price increase will send more people across state lines for cheaper cigarettes… or will cause them to kick the habit entirely.
