VACo Cigarette Tax Toolkit and Second Live Q&A for Tax Stamping Questions

March 19, 2021

Live Q&A Webinar on Cigarette Tax Stamping | Tuesday, April 13 | 10am | Webex Link

Legislation enacted in 2020 authorizes counties to impose a local cigarette tax at a rate not to exceed $0.40 per pack, effective July 1, 2021.  In order to assist members who may be considering implementing the new taxing authority, VACo has developed an online toolkit to provide a centralized location for relevant information.  The toolkit will be updated with additional resources as they are developed.

Current resources posted in the toolkit include:

  • Resources regarding development of revenue estimates
  • Information regarding regional models for implementation
  • Legislative Resources
  • Tax Stamp Resources – Includes the previously recorded SICPA-Meyercord webinar & a recording of the live Q&A session on March 10, 2021, examples of SICPA Cigarette Tax Stamps, and a link to contact SICPA-Meyercord for tax stamp information
  • County Ordinances

VACo will be compiling copies of county cigarette tax ordinances in order to assist members that may be considering adopting similar ordinances in the future.  If your county adopts a cigarette tax ordinance, VACo would appreciate receiving a copy.
