Tobacco faces yet another price hike, due next year, as part of the government’s strategy to increase only ‘indirect’ taxes, so that citizens have a ‘choice’.

The latest price increase will see the tax on cigarette representing 80% of their sale price, explain reports.

The 0.9% hike is the first to come since 2016 when sales of tobacco saw the Treasury rake in over €1.5 billion in tax.
