A cigarette dealer’s license may be obtained in the County Auditor’s office for a fee of $125.00. To obtain the cigarette dealer's license you must also have a vendor’s license.
The license does not authorize the licensee to engage in the business of trafficking cigarettes at any place in this state other than that specified by the County Auditor. (One license is good for one location)
Any person who employs the use of a motor vehicle to convey a supply of cigarette from place to place for the purpose of offering such cigarettes for sale must obtain a license for each vehicle in each county in which any vehicle is used.
In the event that a business moves, or the business is sold, or an individual or partnership incorporates his own business, or a partnership or corporation is dissolved, the cigarette license issued to a dealer prior to the occurrence of any such event may not be used.
A cigarette dealer’s license may be transferred to a different business or person within the same county, by filing an application with the County Auditor and payment of a one-dollar fee to the County Treasurer.
Cigarette licenses are to be displayed near the product being sold for easy inspection. If cigarettes are being sold in your place of business and you do not have a license or your vending machine does not have one displayed, please contact your local County Auditor’s office.
