Businesses must obtain a tobacco sales license from the PA Department of Revenue
Any business, in Pennsylvania, that wants to sell tobacco and/or vaping products must first get a Tobacco Sales license from the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.
There are criminal charges associated with selling tobacco or “Other Tobacco Products” (OTP) without obtaining a license for the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.
There are also criminal penalties associated with selling tobacco products from “out of state”. For example, cigarettes with tax stamps from states other than Pennsylvania.
