HB 1372 -- Cigarette Taxes

Sponsor:  Hosmer

This bill establishes penalties for affixing state tax stamps to
certain types of cigarette packages.

It will be unlawful to affix a state tax stamp to a cigarette
package that:

(1)  does not comply with the Federal Cigarette Labeling and
Advertising Act;

(2)  has been imported into the United States after January 1,
2000, in violation of 26 U.S.C. Sec. 5754;

(3)  has been labeled for export outside the United States only;
or

(4)  has been altered to mask or delete export-only wording.

Any person violating these provisions will be guilty of a class
D felony if convicted.  The Department of Revenue may revoke the
wholesale license of any violator and seize and destroy or sell
any cigarette packages in violation of these provisions.
