Israel taxation of heated tobacco products

November 2017: Israel

Tobacco tax policy on heated tobacco products

Follow up to our letters of 8 May and 21 June this year relating to excise policy for low-risk tobacco products:

We believe the leading direction in tobacco and public health policy is to differentiate tobacco products by risk, including through risk-differentiated taxation.  For example in the UK, the excise duties payable on the Philip Morris International iQOS heatsticks are 69% lower than on the same company’s Marlboro cigarettes.  Our letter expands on these themes.
