maximize msa payments

Each year, U.S. states collect $6 – 8 billion in Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) payments. With state budgets shrinking, this is a vital revenue source. Payment amounts vary based on the quantity of cigarettes sold by brand in each state. If a state doesn’t carefully track cigarette sales by brand within its border, payments due under the MSA could be in jeopardy, costing them millions of dollars.
