Section 45-33-242Levy of tax.
(a) The Hale County Commission is authorized to levy upon every person, firm, or corporation who sells, stores, delivers, uses, or otherwise consumes certain tobacco products in Hale County, a county privilege, license, or excise tax of five cents ($0.05) on each package of cigarettes made of tobacco or any substitute therefor.
(b) The privilege, license, or excise tax levied by this subpart shall be in addition to all other taxes provided by law. Provided, however, when the license tax levied under this subpart is paid by a wholesaler or retailer of cigarettes, the payment shall be sufficient for the taxes levied by this subpart, the intent being that the license tax is to be paid only once on each package of cigarettes.
