Cigars sold on ItalianSmokes are subject to import duties and Federal excise taxes. Our fulfillment centers are located in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, therefore all orders delivered to Massachusetts and Pennsylvania residents will also be subject to state sales taxes. However, please notice that if you are located in another state you may have to pay a consumption tax for out-of-state online purchases. We encourage you to report and pay any applicable local taxes.
To ensure the fastest possible service, we immediately forward new orders to our fulfillment centers and further modifications may not be made. However, please contact Customer Support and we will do our best to serve you.

Once an order has been dispatched to shipping carriers such as USPS, UPS or FedEx, we are unable to reroute the order.
Our Customer Support may place an order for you. However, for the security of our customers, your shipping address must already be stored in your ItalianSmokes account and you must have placed at least one (1) order in the past 12 months. Please note that if an order has been placed on your behalf by a Customer Support, due to security reasons, we can only ship to the addresses you already have on file.
We are legally required to verify the age and eligibility of purchase for all customers by requesting a copy of the credit card holder's ID, either a state-issued ID card or driver's license.

We may also request that you provide a copy of your government issued photo ID such as passport or driver's license along with a picture of the credit card displaying the last 4 digits of the credit card being used.
This is a standard policy to ensure that the person paying for the order is the person receiving the order. All credit card information must be verified before we ship any order.
ItalianSmokes.com is committed in ensuring trust in every aspect of our business. We do not sell tobacco products to anyone under the age of 21. We only sell premium large cigars, and do not sell small cigars, cigarillos, cigarettes, pipes, vapes, or other kinds of tobacco products.
Our premium cigars are to be enjoyed responsibly and only by adults (anyone above the age of 21). We verify the age of all customers prior to the first purchase of tobacco products. This is in compliance with Federal, State, and local laws and regulations.
Per FDA regulation on the sale and purchase of tobacco products, all customers must be validated to confirm the name, date of birth, and address as they appear on government-issued ID. We use a non-affiliated, third party company AgeChecker.Net to substantiate your identity and to assure that you are of minimum age to purchase tobacco products.
AgeChecker.Net has access to trusted public and government data sources in order to validate against the personal information you have provided. It is also specifically designed to protect your identity while maintaining the highest level of privacy when processing online transactions.
Once we have successfully verified you, you will not need to verify again if you log in and order from the same account.
