News Alert

This just came in, the proposed bill to increase taxes on cigarettes and liquor has been approved by the senate and will take effect early 2013. The added tax will help the health centers fund projects and also help the country with ongoing developments. I may not be affected by the tax because i do not smoke nor drink, but my mom will surely feel the pinch. She has been smoking since i can remember and says it really relaxes her especially after a heavy meal. Looks like cigarettes will be a prized possession when the time comes and cigar auction will be famous. My mom on the other hand started buying cigarettes by the ream to make sure she has a steady supply of her favorite brand before the price gets high.

Smart move.
