April 15 is typically feared by many as tax day, but for Kentuckians who smoke cigarettes and use tobacco products, April 1 might be an even scarier day. That’s when House Bill 144 goes into effect, and a new cigarette tax of 30 cents per pack will hit smokers and retailers across the Bluegrass. In addition, a federal excise tax of 62 cents per pack will go into effect for manufacturers and be passed on to customers, making a carton of cigarettes almost $10 higher than before.
