The term has remained even though many products that are considered as luxury taxes today are no longer deemed as Luxuries. Today, it pertains to sinful products like tobacco, alcohol, yachts, villas, jewelry, and top of the line automobiles. These are executed in an attempt to alter consumption patterns as to collecting tax revenues.
