All products distributed by Drip Club are PROP 56 EXCISE TAX PAID. The price you see is the price you pay. You will not be hit with a catastrophic CA BOE tax bill/assessment later.
Drip Club Distribution pricing is excise-tax-inclusive. This means that as a licensed tobacco products distributor, Drip Club Distribution is responsible for timely paying all Prop 56 excise taxes due from the sale of OTP (other tobacco products). OTP excise tax is 28.70% as of April 1, 2017 but is widely expected to increase to 65% on July 1, 2017. We will update this page to the current rate as soon as it is finalized by the BOE.
Because you meet the definition of a tobacco importer pursuant to the BOE statutory definition, YOU are responsible for paying 28.7% excise tax on ALL products you purchase that are shipped to you from distributors out of state.
It is important your invoice states "the applicable tobacco products tax has been paid and are included in the total amount of this invoice." If your invoice DOES NOT contain this text, the BOE will come after YOU for these taxes (28.70% as of 4/1/17, likely 65% as of 7/1/17). You are directly subject to BOE enforcement if you import non tax-paid products from out of state and do not submit timely monthly Prop 56 excise tax payments to the BOE.
