The Fourth of July

I wonder, how many Americans, actually realize that American independence was declared over matters quite similar to this.

“Don’t get caught bringing out-of-state cigarettes into Michigan.”

“One of the most talked about taxes in a long time has caused a little confusion.

One pack, two packs, a carton…how many cigarettes can you bring into Michigan without breaking the law? 24 Hour News 8 went to Fremont, Indiana in search of the answer…one that might surprise you.

Cigarette stores are busy with people from Michigan trying to save money on cigarettes. “I mean, you’re looking at $5.55 for a tax stamp here versus $20 in Michigan,” Charlotte Rodriguez, a store manager, told 24 Hour News 8.

The problem is when you come back across the border. You still have to pay the $2 tax on any pack of cigarettes that has an out-of-state stamp, plus a $2 penalty, bringing the total to an extra $4 for one pack.”

Independence, hey?
