There is a saying that two things are inevitable: death and taxes. Various states have sought to curb vaping through taxation, which will ultimately raise the cost of doing business. The last thing the eJuices.co team wants you to do is raise your prices for your customers. Here are some cities that do not charge excise taxes for vape products.
DISCLAIMER:While we cannot guarantee that these cities will be free of excise taxes on vaping products indefinitely, all information on this page is accurate as of 6/4/21. If you have any questions or concerns, you can always contact your eJuices.co account manager or sales representative.
We previously wrote about Phoenix on eJuices.co as a great place to set up a vape shop. Phoenix’s rapidly growing population necessitates more vape shops. The state of Arizona also does not impose an excise tax on vaping products, which makes it easier to do business if you are a vape shop owner. Phoenix’s proximity to the eJuices.co offices and warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada is advantageous to Phoenix vape shop owners. This means you can get products straight from the eJuices.co warehouse straight onto the shelves of your vape shop quickly and ready for your customers to purchase.
The state of Florida narrowly avoided a flavor ban when Florida governor Ron DeSantis vetoed SB 810 in September 2020. The state of Florida is ideal for vape shop ownersandvapers: no state income tax and no excise tax on vaping products. This makes it easy on Florida vape shop owners. Miami is an international tourist destination and the second largest city in Florida after Jacksonville, and is a great place to open a vape shop as the Miami metropolitan area has close to 6.2 million people covering both Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Year-round warm weather means your customers will enjoy fruit flavored vaping experiences during the summerandthe winter.
Everything is bigger in Texas, or at least that’s how the saying goes. Houston is also the largest city in Texas, and that means the savings should also be bigger in Texas. Like in Miami and the whole state of Florida, there is no state income tax and there is also no excise tax on vaping products in Houston and in Texas overall. Houston vape shop owners can take advantage of a large metropolitan area that is only continuing to grow into the next decade. No need to break out the calculator to determine the excise tax if you are a Houston vape shop owner.
Midwest vapers can take solace in the fact that Indianapolis is one of the more vaper-friendly cities in the region. Indianapolis vape shop owners can take advantage of not having to deal with the paperwork and red tape of excise tax. While Indianapolis is smaller than the other cities featured on this list with around 2 million people living in its metro area, it still remains a promising location for vape shop owners due to the aforementioned lack of excise tax and general friendly attitude towards vaping.
A popular destination for former California residents, Boise is considered a vaper’s haven in the Pacific Northwest. Almost all of Idaho’s neighbors (with the exception of Montana), such as Washington, Oregon, Wyoming, and Utah, all charge some sort of excise tax on vaping products. Washington goes as far as to charge separate excise taxes for open and closed systems. Boise vape shop owners can take advantage of being free from excise tax on vaping products and attract customers into their stores with lower prices. After all, many people are flocking into Idaho for a lower cost of living, and that means many new customers for your Boise-based vape shop.
