Revenues might be "history" there now, but I worked in a shipping company in 2000/2001, and saw revenue stamps one day on a Bill of Lading from the Maldives.

As far as I know Hong Kong doesn't use them anymore. When it comes to Stamp Duty on real estate leases, they use a meter machine. The Inland Revenue department did some (ugly) stamps (1980s?), but I haven't seen them used on documents, they're offered now and then mint in auctions/eBay, often without takers.

Hi

In Argentina there are revenues on the cigarette packages (as many, many countries). Beside these, there are a little usage of revenues. Some policial documents, some municipal inspections. I have some recent ones from provinces, but I ignore how they are used (if they are used..).

Maldives revenues are listed here (same as Barefoot), and the latest issue is from 1981, although postage stamps might still be used fiscally. Were they fiscally used postage stamps or another unrecorded revenue issue?
http://www.revrevd.com/maldive-islands.html

The Hong Kong issue you are referring to is the one from 1980 (13 values, Barefoot 431-443). Apart from two surcharges on that issue done in c.1990, it is the last HK issue listed in Barefoot. I only have the $3 and $9 values from that issue (used) which I found in a 5c box.

Thanks. Actually I don't regard those excise labels as stamps, but as seals or labels. Malta also uses them (see http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=40811) but I don't specifically collect them (although I do keep the ones I come across). If these were included, the list would be much larger as I think they are used almost everywhere.

Thanks. :)


PS. I had forgotten about the USA duck stamps, so Argentina, Indonesia and the United States are now added to the list.

As a side-note, countries that used to issue revenues but stopped fairly recently include Great Britain (1997), Italy (2005) and South Africa (2009).

Here, at the Argentine forum, you can find examples of recent uses of revenue stamps.
I think you should be a registered user to be able of see this topic.

In Croatia (and possibly in all other ex-Yugoslav republics), Tax Stamp (Taksena Marka or Biljeg on Croatian) are still using for the birth and marriage certificates etc. There is only one type of that revenue (as has always been from the 19th century), but with the different values. I bought a couple of them a year ago, for some stupid certificate... but, they looks pretty fine... have a nice, shining hologram. I can scan some of them... if someone is interested to see...

Both India and Jammu/Kashmir are already included in the list.

Jammu & Kashmir issued revenues in the 1950s-60s and they are still in use today.

According to Barefoot the latest India revenue issue was in 2011 (100 paise red stamp, Lion Capital of Asoka). I am also aware of a couple of modern issues (Notarial etc) which are not listed in Barefoot.

Ouch, that would have been an interesting piece. :(

Mint seem to be common enough, and not much demand chasing them, but used I don't see so much of.

I've seen full sheets of these in auction before, and often the lots get passed-in. How did collectors get hold of them, I certainly hope one didn't have to buy them up-front, as that could get mighty expensive. :shock:

i think some states in India removed using of revenue stamps in their states e.g karnataka
not 100% sure but the government of that state onced in 2003 issued a notification of removing of revenue stamps from their state as a result to stop use of fake revenue stamp.

If you count the tax-paid additions to the labels on bottles of alcohol in the UK, then we still use revenues as well. Now if I could only find a bottle to scan.....

My son visited Egypt last year and had these stamps placed in his passport.

I'm not sure of they are revenue only or combined postage and revenue issues?

I don't know if they remain in use in 2013.

Costa Rica still uses a number of different revenue stamps.

The Society of Costa Rica Collectors (SOCORICO) issues a specialised catalogue of Costa Rica stamps as well as a revenue catalogue.

Both the Ukraine and Belarus ones are excise seals for alcohol and cigarettes, which are not included in the list (although they are still interesting). Malta still uses excise seals as well, on both cigarettes and alcohol (the alcohol ones are slightly different and impossible to remove from the bottle):

You need to add St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis...they all have their own revenue stamps. Namibia as well (dont remember if this was on the list) and BArbados is a definite.

Also airport departure tax stamps are revenue stamps as well....

Add Canada to the list of revenue stamp countries for the salmon conservation stamps that must be affixed to one's fishing license. Similar in purpose to the USA duck stamps.

If I can find my old fishing license from a fishing trip a few years back I'll post up an image.

To bump this thread, apparently France also still issues revenues. Here is a 30€ stamp issued in 2012 - the image is from Delcampe.
Image
Out of curiosity, do any French members know how many such stamps exist? From a quick look on the internet, I found various values ranging from 1€ to 90€, each bearing the year of issue (such as "12" on Marianne's neck), so there might be a lot of these out there.

Can someone update the links to the earlier images in this thread please?

The Maldives was indeed still using revenues until now: apparently, today the Maldives parliament decided to discontinue their use.
avas wrote: Parliament passes bill to discontinue use of revenue stamps


The Maldives Parliament has passed a motion to discontinue the use of revenue stamps.

The Revenue Stamp Act that mandates the use of revenue stamps has been in effect in the Maldives since 1970. A motion was submitted at the parliament proposing to nullify the act by Central Henveiru MP and Majority leader Ali Azim. The Parliament's Committee of the Whole House approved to repeal the act earlier this month.

In the vote taken on the Parliament floor on Monday regarding the motion, 44 parliamentarians voted in favor of repealing the law. No members voted against the motion.

The motion submitted by MP Azim said the cost of implementing the Revenue Stamp Act was not feasible when compared to the revenue generated by it. It further said that the revenue generated from the stamps can be generated through other services and fees. Requiring businesses to obtain revenue stamps in addition to paying the due fees and other payments causes difficulties for businesses, it further said.

Canada still of course uses the revenue labels for cigarettes and liquor. But there is a rather new revenue stamp that has caught on with some collectors. The Government of Canada legalized, regulated and restricted access to cannabis on October 17, 2018. Under federal legislation: adults can possess up to 30 grams of legally-produced cannabis. We can also grow up to 5 plants on our property for personal use. Like the various liquor board across Canada, the distribution and sale of cannabis is controlled by the provincial government.

They have come up with some lovely revenues though.

When I have time I'll try to compile an updated list of countries which still use revenues.

When you include excise stamps such as the Canadian cannabis, cigarette and tobacco issues the list will be much longer than the ones above compiled in 2013. Many countries are still using these, and I believe such usage is increasing rather than decreasing - for example, Malta recently began issuing stamps for alcoholic beverages (2006), wine (2015), rolling tobacco (2019), water-pipe tobacco (2020) and lubricating oils (2020) alongside excise stamps for cigarettes which have been around since the 1920s.

Italy has revenue stamps, but these are no longer issued as fixed denominations. Current revenue stamps are custom printed for the exact amount of transaction.

I unexpectedly came across the long lost fishing license and I guess I’m not too senile yet as I remembered this old thread (it took me almost as long to find the thread as it did the license :lol: ).

And so, herewith, I fulfill my promise from way back then (egads, have I really been a member here that long)?!
