Cook County cigarette tax increasing by $1 a pack
CHICAGO – Taxes on cigarettes sold in Cook County are going up by one dollar a pack.
Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle said the tax, which took effect Friday, is expected to generate more than $25 million annually for the Cook County Health and Hospitals System.
She says higher taxes also will help lower smoking rates, including by discouraging people from starting.
