Tobacco Tax — Billing

The tobacco tax applies to all tobacco products sold at retail in Québec. Retailers must therefore collect the tobacco tax on every sale of tobacco products, but the tax may not be shown on your receipt. 

The rate of the tobacco tax varies depending on the type of tobacco product. For the rates in effect, refer to the Tobacco Tax Rate Table (TA-1-V).

To find out more about the calculation of the tobacco tax applicable to cigars, see Tax Collection Method for Cigars.

The GST also applies to tobacco products and is calculated on the price including the tobacco tax. However, tobacco products are zero-rated (This link will open a new window) under the QST system.
