5 CENTS PER ML OF E-LIQUID INSTEAD OF A 71% TAX
Not long ago, the state of Wisconsin passed one of the country's lowest taxes on e-cigarettes. A situation that is not suitable for Dr. Todd Mahr, pediatric allergologist and immunologist at the Gundersen health system in La Crosse. He stated that the tax was not high enough to prevent children from using e-cigarettes.
Le Evers governor has indeed signed a law that imposes a tax of 5 cents per milliliter on e-liquids. Initially, the governor had proposed a much higher tax with a tax rate at 71% on e-liquids and all vaping products.
Dr. Todd Mahr said the health experts were hoping for a veto, as it will now be harder to introduce a tax that will deter children from using the e-cigarette. According to him, "lthe new tax is meaningless and will have no impact on those who buy e-liquids ".
