BURLINGTON, Vermont — With vaping on the rise among teenagers and adults alike, a 92% tax on e-cigarettes is set to go into effect Monday in Vermont.

Wholesale dealers and consumers must abide by rule changes around the 92% excise tax — a "Tobacco Products Tax" — starting July 1. The legislation, which expanded items that can be taxed, passed this year.

The state's Department of Taxes clarifies    who will be affected by the new legislation. 

The legislation "expanded the existing definition of 'other tobacco products.'"  Items included in the legislation are provided on the department's website. 

Examples include:

  • E-cigarettes.
  • Vaping hoodies.
  • Vaping liquid cartridges.
  • Vaping liquid.
  • "Repair parts that can only be used in vaping devices."
