Code Section 3.2-4201 requires escrow deposits to be 223adjusted for inflation.224 Va. Code Section 3.2-4200 defines 223adjusted for inflation224 as increases in accordance with the formula for inflation adjustment set forth in Exhibit C to the Master Settlement Agreement. Each year, this calculation applies an inflation rate of 3% or the actual inflation rate, whichever is greater. The actual inflation rate for the calendar year will not be known until January of the following year. Consequently, for the first three quarters, the escrow deposits due should be calculated using a projected escrow rate based on a 3% inflation percentage for the year. That projected rate is indicated below. The actual inflation rate for the year will become available in January of the following year, and at that time an actual escrow rate for the year, including inflation, will be inserted into the appropriate blank space below on this form as it will appear on the Office of the Attorney General website at www.oag.state.va.us To determine its Fourth Quarter escrow deposit, the manufacturer should multiply its total units sold during the calendar year times the actual (i.e., newly announced) escrow rate, to get the total of escrow deposits due for the year. The manufacturer should then subtract the total of the first three quarters222 escrow deposits that have already been made, to arrive at the amount of escrow that is due for the Fourth Quarter. For First Three Quarterly Deposits: For 2019 sales, the projected escrow rate per cigarette, including the inflation adjustment, is $0.0357965. Quarterly Deposit Total: = $ (Units Sold during quarter x projected escrow rate per cigarette) For Fourth Quarter Deposits Only: Total Escrow Due for Sales Year 2019: (Total units sold for all four quarters x actual escrow rate per cigarette of ). $ Subtract Total Amount of Escrow Deposited for First Three Quarters- $ Fourth Quarter Escrow Deposit Due: = $ Note: If Manufacturer is also depositing escrow on RYO tobacco sales, add total cigarette escrow deposit from above to the RYO tobacco escrow total from page 2 of Certificate of Compliance for RYO Tobacco sales (quarterly), and make one combined deposit, for cigarettes and RYO tobacco, to the escrow account.
