The government earned about 800 billion rials ($21 million) in tax revenues from cigarette sales during the first two months of the current fiscal year (March 21-May 21), the Central Bank of Iran announced. The sum accounted for 0.7% of the government’s earnings from indirect taxes during the period, up from 0.6% in the corresponding period of last year, Mizan Online reported. Taxes on cigarette sales are planned to reach 4.6 trillion rials (over $120.7 million) by the end of the current Iranian year (March 20, 2018).

The domestic production of cigarettes hit 45 billion in the last Iranian year (March 2016-17), which is 15 billion more than in the year before.
