Radio Show #237 – Tom Florence and
Your Excise Tax

Every year, a couple of months in, an unusual little tax makes its appearance.

It’s your excise tax!

What is it? Why do we have it? How is the figure calculated?

What happens if I don’t pay it on time? Or if i do not pay it at all!

East Longmeadow’s Tom Florence has had very involved knowledge of the tax, and presents it in detail, as well as answering these and other questions.
