Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

The purpose of this study was to estimate the tax value of tobacco products consumed by persons younger than 18 years in 2007.

METHODS:

Tax, population, and consumption data were used to compute an estimate of the tax value of tobacco products consumed by minors.

RESULTS:

Youth smoking generated an estimated 193 Million Euro in federal tax revenue in one year.

CONCLUSIONS:

The revenues from cigarettes smoked by youth should be used to finance youth-specific prevention programmes.
