MASSACHUSETTS CUSTOMERS- YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION. PLEASE READ THIS! Because Watch City Cigar Co. resides in the state of Massachusetts and is responsible for the payment of Massachusetts tobacco excise tax which is based on the wholesale cost of the tobacco product, all tobacco products shipped or billed to a Massachusetts address will have 20% to 30% excise tax added, based on the wholesale cost of the product. In addition, a 6.25% Massachusetts sales tax will be added to all products on all orders shipped or billed to a Massachusetts address.
This is the law. Please address all complaints to your state reps.
NOTE TO ANY PERSON VISITING OUR BRICK AND MORTAR STORE IN FRAMINGHAM, MASSACHUSETTS: The Massachusetts Excise text is built in to all cigars and tobacco products on our store shelves. we cannot give you out of state prices unless the product is ordered from outside Massachusetts and shipped outside of Massachusetts. Expect to pay 20% to 30% higher prices in the brick and mortar store. This is due to Massachusetts cigar and tobacco excise tax. Thank You for your understanding.
Seriously...if one more of you comes in with a list from the website demanding to pay "tax-free" website prices and tells us "That's not the way taxes work?" Yeah...no. We've been doing this for 30 years and can tell you that is EXACTLY how taxes work. We have to pay them...and so do you. All sales in Massachusetts including orders with a Massachusetts billing and/or shipping address are subject to Mass tobacco and sales tax. Period. Got an issue with it? Want to come in the store and call us thieves? I suggest you call the Mass. DOR. They will laugh at you and probably flag you for an audit for being a right idiot. That is all.
AS OF JUNE 1ST, 2020, NO FLAVORED CIGARS OR TOBACCO CAN BE SHIPPED TO A MASSACHUSETTS ADDRESS. ALSO, WE NO LONGER OFFER FLAVORED TOBACCO IN OUR BRICK AND MORTAR STORE.
