Cigarette Tax

Oswego, NY – The State Association of convenience stores is sharply critical today of Governor Spitzer's decision to drop plans to collect sales taxes on cigarettes and gasoline sold by Native American merchants to non-Indians.

The decision reneges on Spitzer's campaign promise last year and will result in the loss of an estimated 200 million dollars to the state.

WRVO's Chris Ulanowski spoke to the President of the Convenience Store Association....Jim Calvin.
