Tobacco License in NYC

Asked by: Martin Torres - 30 August, 2011 Can customers roll their own cigarettes in a smoke shop were tobacco is sold in NYC (Bronx) using a small rolling machine and if yes what license will I need?
Answered by: Alec Green - 6 September, 2011 Martin,

I presume your customers will buy tobacco products in your store (whether pre-manufactured or "self made"), which means you would need to obtain a retail tobacco license (as well as NY sales tax ID). 

Keep in mind that to sell tobacco products in New York City you need to obtain both the NYS Retail Tobacco License and NYC Cigarette Retail Dealer License.

I haven't heard of any "do it yourself" tobacco licenses (but this is New York City, so everything is possible :)
