      Does anyone know what the tax is on tobacco products?
      Hookah, cigarettes and cigars.

      Please help!

          I am in the process of opening my own cigar business, and from what I have found, tobacco taxes can vary by state, and the process of getting a license also varies by state. I am in Montana, and thus far it has been pretty straightforward, and am looking forward to getting my tobacco (cigar) license by the end of August. Taxes are also different on cigarettes vs. cigars. The easiest way I found to get the process started is to go to your states Secratery of State or dept of revenue website and follow the steps from there. Mt has what is called onestoplicensing, and it is pretty streamlined. I also believe that you can go to your local county courthose if you are a more face to face person. These options should cover both licensing and taxes specific to your state.
