If you sell Cigarettes in your Store, you are very familiar with price increases and tax hikes. Recently the Illinois General Assembly raised the state cigarette tax from $1 to $1.98 per pack. The tax hike goes into effect June 24, 2012.
The Group Price Change feature in backOffice™ Software is the perfect tool for these “across the board” price increases. This PER PACK and PER CARTON increase can be done with a few keystrokes instead of hours or days adjusting each individual product.
If you are in a nearby State and are seeing an increase in sales because of this tax hike, “Orders Based on Sales” is a great way to keep your shelves stocked. Group Price Change is one of the many tools that backOffice™ Software provides to help make your Store successful.
Where can I see a report on which Illinois pollticians voted for and against the last cigerette tax increase?
