Temporary Relief From PACT Act for Seneca Cigarette Sellers Ends Tonight


BUFFALO – The PACT Act, which took effect on June 29, will require companies that sell cigarettes via the mail to pay state and local sales tax on those sales.

Those businesses that belong to the Seneca Free Trade Association have been exempt, due to a temporary restraining order that expires tonight.

The Seneca Free Trade Association and other area businesses say the PACT Act is unconstitutional.

A judge is expected to make a ruling before tonight’s deadline, but no information regarding such has become available as of yet.
