Excise Tax Growth on Tobacco and Alcoholic Products Intensified Smuggling Attempts

Growth in excise tax rates on tobacco and alcoholic products has intensified smuggling attempts, Revenue Service head Giorgi Tabuashvili said.

“Certainly, number of similar cases has increased, however, our service actively cooperates with investigative structures to expose smuggling facts and prevent them”, he said.

Excise tax growth has intensified smuggling to a certain degree, but we are ready to eradicate this practice, Giorgi Tabuashvili noted.
