What can be said about whetherexcise mark to prevent illegal business, as well as the sale of clandestine products. First and foremost, it is worth noting that it is a way for the state to get a lot of money for itself. The bottom line is that certain goods have a very low cost price. A vivid example of this is alcohol. The real cost of a bottle of vodka is about twenty times lower than the one for which it is released. With such high prices, manufacturers are trying to get back the money they gave to the state for the right to engage in their activities.
The sums of excise duties are indeed oftentranscendental. Let's note, that, raising them, the state raises the prices for alcohol. This method is sometimes used not only to replenish the pockets of officials, but also to take certain measures to prevent the fight against alcoholism.
