State officials seize 2,810 packs of cigarettes without state stamps
St. Paul – On April 18, Department of Revenue officials seized 2,810 packs (281 cartons) of cigarettes without state stamps. The unstamped cigarettes were being shipped from an out-of-state business to retail businesses on the Leech Lake reservation. By not paying Minnesota’s cigarette tax, the Band sells the unstamped cigarettes for a lower price ($3.50 per pack) compared to other retailers, who sell properly state-stamped cigarettes for $6 to $9 per pack.
