Colorado Tax Increase Defeated!

Legislation to increase the tax on other tobacco products (OTP) in Colorado was defeated by the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) and our industry allies!

If referred measure HB19-1333 passed, the OTP tax could have increased by 22 percent after approval by voters during the 2019 statewide election, raising the total tax to 62 percent of the manufacturers list price.

Thank you to all IPCPR members who helped generate nearly 24,000 emails to the legislature in opposition to HB19-1333!
