While the rest of the world is witnessing fierce opposition to e-liquids, Italy once again proves to be the leader in Europe for innovative policies towards electronic cigarettes.
The amendment presented by the Lega asking for tax reduction on liquids for vaping has been confirmed by the Italian Parliament. The reduction cut the fiscal taxes of 10% on e-liquids with nicotine and 5 % for products without nicotine. Specifically, the charge is 0.42 cents for bottles of liquids without nicotine, and double (0.84 cents) for those containing nicotine.
This comes after the sector of ecigs was hit last year by a rise on taxes as an attempt to respond to the Covid-19 emergency. A situation that heavily affected the workers and producers.
