What are the first step to become a tobacco retailer?
Every state regulates tobacco products differently. You may need to obtain federal and state tax identification numbers, a state tobacco license, a local business license and more. You should have an idea of the types of tobacco products that you plan to sell, as different types of licenses are often required for each product.
The best way to approach starting a new tobacco business is to be informed as to all the licensing requirements that may apply to your business. See our website for more information on license research and let our licensing experts help you get your business off the ground.
Best of luck with your business!
