The Economics of Cigarette Taxation: Lessons for Georgia
Posted: 28 May 2004
The author analyzes the effects of the cigarette excise tax increase that Georgia enacted in 2003 and of a possible future increase. He finds that Georgia businesses won't be hurt much and that the regressive effect of the tax is offset by improved health for low-income smokers who quit because of the hike.
