Why the Gov’t Doesn’t Want You to Quit Smoking

I know we posted about the $50,000,000 (YES FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS) 𝗣𝗘𝗥 𝗗𝗔𝗬 in taxes smokers pay to the government…

But let’s discuss the tax on your alcohol  21-30% on alcohol (because I can’t get into the details of what alcohol is what % of tax let’s do an average.

 

25% tax on alcohol… liquor makers charge (avg) 40% of total paid & liquor stores make the other $35%!

 

25% tax from 2021 alcohol sales of $25.5 𝐁𝐈𝐋𝐋𝐈𝐎𝐍 which is $6.375 BILLION for the year. $17.5 𝑴𝑰𝑳𝑳𝑰𝑶𝑵 per day in Canada in 2021!

Cigarettes & alcohol pay the government $67.5 million per day in tax!

 

This DOES NOT include you income tax, property tax, general sales tax (5-13%) YOU ALSO PAY…

 

This when averaged out as best as I could calculate … the average PERSON at $65,000 per year is taxes about 56% of their total income… TAXES ONLY… this doesn’t include actual items… just the tax paid on items..

 

And we wonder why we’re broke… and struggling to get thru..

 

The average family needs a minimum of $650 more per mth to make ends meet due to inflation… but the governments doing just fine…
