HB15-1257 - Elim Penalty To Increase Compliance Cigarette Sale

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning The Removal Of Penalties On Local Governments Regarding The Regulation And Sale Of Cigarettes.

From state income tax moneys, the state currently apportions an amount equal to 27% of state cigarette tax revenues to cities, towns, and counties (local governments) in proportion to the amount of state sales tax revenues collected within the boundaries of the local governments. Local governments are prohibited from receiving their allocation of these moneys if they impose their own fees, licenses, or taxes on cigarette sales. The bill would repeal this prohibition, allowing local governments the option to impose fees, licenses, or taxes on cigarettes without losing their apportioned state cigarette tax revenues.
