Tobacco Distributors License

Asked by: Bruce - 18 July, 2012 If I want to open a distribution business of cigarettes do I need to have an actual store front? Can I use my private house as a storage area?
Answered by: Mary Dubitsky - 19 July, 2012 Bruce,

Businesses engaged in selling cigarettes are heavily regulated at the federal, state, and local level. Every jurisdiction has different laws regarding licensure as well as storage requirements for cigarettes.

Many jurisdictions, like the New York State, prohibit distributors from storing cigarettes in a private residence. Generally, these jurisdictions will not issue a cigarette license to a business if it is doing so. Before operating your business, you may want to research the laws in your state to determine what may or may not be legal.
