Thanks to a team at Credio, who did a study on tobacco, taxes, beer and wine in each state, we know that Wyoming has the lowest "sin" tax in the Union. The data they used came from TaxPolicyCenter.org and the Federation of Tax Administrators.
Here is how Wyoming fared, according to the study.
- Tobacco tax per pack of smokes - 60 cents
