As nicotine pouches are still a relatively new product, we will walk you through what the current restrictions are in Florida and what brands and varieties can be delivered to your door.
What are the current restrictions on nicotine pouches in Florida?
In the state of Florida, you can only buy and use nicotine products if you are aged 21 or over. However, restrictions on nicotine products are continuously changing and can be rapidly implemented. If ever you are unsure on the current regulations in your state, please check with your local authorities.
What is the current tax on nicotine pouches in Florida?
Every online vendor is legally required to charge applicable nicotine tax and sales tax for all online orders (this is usually reflected in the order total during the checkout process).
The sales tax is calculated in accordance with the applicable state and local laws. In Florida, the current sales tax rate at the time of publication is 6%. However, you can find out more about sales tax in other states and follow the latest updates through the Sales Tax Institute.
State Excise Tax (SET, also known as tobacco or nicotine tax) is applied based on the state and local laws - where you live will impact this tax.
SET is calculated in one of the following ways:
- based on a % of the wholesale price (cost) to Nicokick
- based on Nicokick selling price
- based on weight (per selling unit)
For example, if you are wondering how ZYN is taxed in Florida, for those interested, here is an example:
If you order 1 can of ZYN Wintergreen 6mg, listed at $3.89. Florida sales tax on this would be $0.59 and there is no SET on ZYN. The cost would then be $4.48 before shipping – but we calculate this at checkout for you, no need to grab your calculator!
