Lile Cigars Dened as Cigarees
Tobacco products known as “little cigars” are taxed and regulated as cigarettes.
A cigarette is dened as any roll for smoking made wholly or in part of tobacco, that weighs 4.5 pounds or less per thousand:
(1) the wrapper or cover of which is made of paper or another substance or material except tobacco
(2) wrapped in any substance containing tobacco, however labeled or named, which, because of its appearance, size, the type of tobacco
used in the ller, or its packaging, pricing, marketing, or labeling is likely to be oered to or purchased by consumers as a cigarette,
as dened in clause (1), unless it is wrapped in whole tobacco leaf and does not have a cellulose acetate or other cigarette-like lter as
meeting the statutory denition of a cigarette
No matter the packaging conguration, the Department of Revenue will view any product not wrapped in whole leaf tobacco and having a
cellulose acetate or other cigarette-like lter as meeting the statutory denition of a cigarette.
