essay on smoking

por Sam Merrill (2018-06-25)

According to large shipments of well packaged, knock off cigarettes are brought into the US from China. While this is happening, lower cost cigarettes are smuggled from “tobacco states” to the high tax states. Excise tax enforcement has be slashed with the number if investigators reduced to the point where they cannot possibly operate effectively. My Criminal Investigative Unit went from 15 agents to, when I retired, 4 agents. That is supposed to cover every type of investigation from criminal tax fraud of sales tax and income tax through motor fuel, cigarettes and alcohol tax fraud. It’s only going to get worse since people are always looking for a way to “screw the taxman.”
