    How long before there are NYS troopers undercover there, reporting the license plate numbers of people going to those stores and then having them stopped entering NY. With the LP scanners they have everywhere it’s easy. Don’t they do that with fireworks?

      I gave up cigars few years back, my son smokes them, and now I will enjoy one with him once in a while. He visits the local smoke lounge and also orders others online. NY wants to make things inconvenient and expensive... quit or pay up... getting close to tar and feather time.

        Fireworks are illegal in NY, cigars are not. All they can try to do is collect the extra tax, and they're not going to deploy the State Police for that.

          Avoiding taxes is illegal and they have gone after people shopping in other states (NJ) for it. They’ve sent police to look for plates in NJ mall parking lots to catch people who didn’t pay the NY sales tax when they came back to NY. For a significant amount of tax revenue, they’ll do the same.

        what a great use of the police. Real criminals are free to walk the streets, but if you buy smokes from out of state... off to slammer. Maybe not jail, but you can bet you'll be paying a hefty fine.

          You don't have to pay the taxes, until you file your income taxes. And then, you can use an estimate based on your income, which is usually lower than what you probably actually would have paid. It also releases you from any liability in avoiding paying NYS taxes on out of state purchases.

            That may be true but I know they were doing this to NYers shopping g in NJ when NJ had a tax holiday on some classes of items. They aren’t going to arrest you but they are going to get every Nicole out of they they want.

            I said cops/troopers. It might have been tax agents.
