Rockyscigars.com is obligated to collect New York State tobacco tax on NYS resident tobacco purchases ONLY. We must include a charge of 21.5% only to orders delivered in or billed to addresses in NY State. We also collect 8% NYS Sales Tax.
We are not required to collect taxes for any other state.
The full amount of NYS Tax IS NOT calculated at the time the order is placed. We will contact the customer and advise them of the tax up charge and only ship upon the customer’s confirmation to pay the NYS tax on the order.
NYS orders for Non-tobacco items ( ex. Cigar ashtray, or a humidor) DO NOT get taxed by NYS Tobacco Tax, however, we do collect 8% sales tax on the sales if they are delivered in or originate in NYS.
We appreciate your business! Enjoy your visit.
