Utah governor plans to tax e-cigs, bring in $10m

December 16, 2014

Utah Governor Gary Herbert is proposing to tax e-cigarettes. His office predicts that doing so will raise $10 million next year.

Herbert doesn’t consider the new e-cigarette tax to be a tax hike, but rather a change in the way the state treats the products.

“The proposal is just saying, ‘Here’s a product that should fit under the umbrella of tobacco,'” Herbert said in an interview with The Tribune.
