    As I have been told alot of us Swedish people make oral-suff from"make your own snuff kit". This ain't a big problem but alot of people think it's like "the end of the world". I have been speed most of yesterday to tell people to come down and just see what happens:https://translate.googleusercontent....skattesmallar/

    Sounds about right, greedy people trying to fleece you. Maybe they can mix the salt in before it's imported to avoid the tax.

    That's strange. So, they want to tax it before it's even turned into its final intended product? This wouldn't happen in Canada because a person with an excise warehouse license can store even manufactured tobacco tax free. It's when it gets packaged for sale that it gets taxed. Essentially, the warehouse buys tax stickers which goes on the product, and thus applying them, they become legal for sale.

    Yes they want. And they have also found out that the dry portion snuff can be smoked in their tests (and shall also have that smoking tobacco taxes).I would like to see a disparate smoker stand and smoke those!

    ChinaVoodoo: When I think about it I most say that the way that you say that it works in Canada is pretty much how it have been working in Sweden (and in Europe) but this is new and if the Customs Service get right on this it might change much because the last word in this will be from the European onion. "The Customs Authority justifies the change in its assessment that the rules on what is known as the Combined Nomenclature (CN), tobacco classification rules, were adjusted in April 2016. This was done by a clarification by the EU (2016 / C121 / 05) where the EU specifies how the tests of the tobacco must go to. In the Official Journal of the European Union, the EU writes that it is "typical of tobacco waste" that it is possible to smoke.A later ruling in the EU Court of Justice (C638 / 15) from April 2017 also takes place, in which the European Court of Justice makes several clarifications of the rules how to define what is taxable tobacco smoke. Among other things, it is sufficient for tobacco to be easily made smokeless without the manufacturer's processing." https://translate.googleusercontent....cess-1.4574017

    It seems to me there's two topics. On one hand, there's little justification in having different tax schemes for manufactured snuff and cigarettes at the consumer level, and instead of simply increasing smokeless tax, they're trying to take a shortcut by making a bullshit reclassification move.

    Secondly, taxing the base material the manufacturers use reeks of double dipping.

    Yes and Customs and Tax Agency ain't really work together here in this case because the company that looking in the transports say that I as a private person can bay tobacco leaf and take it in to the country with out tobacco taxes but if they check it and found that the leaf can be smoked after a small process it shall have the smoking tobacco taxes.But the company that stand for the taxes (skattevarket) say that they can't answer "my type of question right now".. So right now I can just sit back and relax and hope for the best..-But this can put hole EU upside down when it comes to tobacco taxes..

    Re: This is what alot of Swedish people talk about right now:

    Media can really angulate most so that it sounds worse than it is, the company my links are about has two products that underlie the dispute between the Customs. In Swedish media it does not appear correctly but these are two products that should have been tested and found to be possible to smoke (Smokey Gold and Gunman). So this two products shall be what the thing is all about (and it sounds to me like Prillan have wrong):"Smokey Gold Ready-made, high-quality raw tobacco made from 100% Virginiatobak. Smokey Gold can be smoked as it is, but moisturizes it makes it a little milder in taste.""Raw tobacco Gunman 400g has a light and delicious flavor. Ligs loosely packed in the package. You can use Gunman tobacco can be used as it is to roll your own cigarettes. It works just as well as pipe tobacco."

    But I still wonder about the answer the Customs Service gave me " You can bay tobacco leaf and take it in to the country with out tobacco taxes but if they check it and found that the leaf can be smoked after a small process it shall have the smoking tobacco taxes".

    Re: This is what alot of Swedish people talk about right now:

    This little story will soon have a end: https://translate.googleusercontent....JF-bAH2_Khyrhg -But what I have heard this company will have to pay taxes for two of their products. They happened to sell those two products as smoke tobacco (pipe and cigarettes). To day they do it with out paying taxes for smoke tobacco.
