No limit on cigarette tax stamps, judge says
Illinois must sell as many cigarette tax stamps to distributors as they want, a Sangamon County judge has decided.
Shortly after last Thursday’s ruling, one distributor bought $13.2 million worth of stamps from the state, more than the state normally sells to all distributors in an entire week.
Judge John “Mo” Madonia issued a temporary restraining order that prohibits the Department of Revenue from limiting the number of cigarette stamps it will sell to distributors in advance of the state’s upcoming $1-a-pack increase in the cigarette tax. The hike goes into effect Sunday.
