Stop the Vapor Tax!

Posted on May 06 2021

Following some procedural drama, HB 211 is on its way to a vote by the full Texas House of Representatives.

This bill would impose a 5c/mL tax on e-liquid.

Five cents per milliliter might not sound like much, but it stacks up fast. HB 211 would add $1.50 to a 30mL bottle of e-liquid. Again, while it may not sound like a huge chunk of money, data show that it doesn't take much to discourage people from switching to vaping. Minnesota's 95% wholesale tax on just nicotine (which amounted to a similar small increase in costs to MN consumers) prevented more than 30,000 people from ditching cigarettes for vaping.

At the same time, this tax would add less than a nickel to popular closed system products, which are more widely available compared to bottled e-liquid. This policy gives an unfair advantage to products sold predominantly by convenience-oriented retailers that can't provide the same level of support that many people experience in a specialty shop--support to completely switch to vaping!

Texas lawmakers need to hear your experience with switching to safer nicotine products like vaping. Take action today and stop Texas from making Minnesota's mistake!

Take Action now!

    Vaping was the ONLY Thing that got me to quit nasty cancer causing Cigarettes!!! I smoked for 31 Years and I FINALLY Found something (Vaping) that made me put Cigarettes Down For Good!!! It would be a Horrible Tragedy if the Government Bans or Makes it Harder to Be able to Purchase Vaping Products. My Own Doctor told me that my lungs have Finally sounded Better than they Ever Have! I Hope you take Vaping into Serious Perspective against Smoking Nasty Cigarettes. Thank you. Sincerely, Dreama Flanagan
