If the beef between these two states weren’t bad enough, this guy would make it even worse.  A Florida man pleaded guilty Monday to defrauding the state of California out of more than $10 million in tobacco taxes.

Akrum Alrahib of Miami admitted conspiring to commit mail fraud. He admitted to providing untaxed tobacco products like cigars, chewing tobacco, and leaf tobacco to multiple people and companies in California. He did this knowing his products would be sold illegally.

Now, this has deprived the state of California of a lot of tax money. The amount varies as they changed the taxes on tobacco during California, but it is believed to be over $10 Million. Licensed tobacco distributors must collect and report the excise tax when they distribute the product within California.
