    Tobacco Products Tax Licenses Current Monthly County Revenue

    data.pa.gov | Last Updated 2020-10-08T13:31:40.000Z

    This dataset contains the list of tobacco products tax licenses as maintained by the Department of Revenue (DOR) that are currently active. For the purposes of this dataset, active status indicates dealers authorized to handle tobacco products subject to Pennsylvania tax. This list is intended to be refreshed monthly, removing the licenses that are cancelled or expire without renewal, and adding new licenses once they are approved. The addresses provided are supposed to be the physical location where the taxable sales happen or taxable service provided. The DOR generally does not validate the location address, so there may be misspelled items. Tobacco products licenses must be conspicuously displayed at the location issued. In order to reduce fraud, a portion of the license number was masked. If you suspect someone is selling unstamped cigarettes, or selling tobacco products without a license in Pennsylvania, use this link to Report Tax Fraud. Tips can be left anonymously, but supporting documentation is helpful. More information about the tobacco products tax: PA Code, Article III Cigarette and Beverage Taxes. PA Department of Revenue website: https://www.revenue.pa.gov. Common questions: • Why are there out of state/out of country licenses? Tobacco products tax requires licensing at all levels before shipping to PA wholesalers and retailers. Some stampers, manufacturers or wholesalers maintain product outside PA and ship to PA retailers or wholesalers. The license should be the location the product is stored. • What is “Other Tobacco Products” (OTP)? The cigarette tax law was amended in 2016 to include electronic cigarettes and related liquid (commonly referred to as vaping), roll-your-own tobacco (loose tobacco that can be used to make cigarettes), snuff, pipe tobacco, and other tobacco products used for chewing, ingesting or smoking. More information is available from Revenue’s web site. • Does this list contain every tobacco product retailer? It should. In order to sell product legally in PA, a retailer must be licensed. There could be pending licenses at the time of publication – if you have a concern, use the Report Fraud link above.
