Tobacco License: do I need GED?
No, a GED or other forms of diplomas/degrees are not required to obtain a Tobacco license. Typically, you actually do not require a GED for most permits, licenses, state or federal tax identification numbers or to form and register a business entity. The time you may need a diploma would be if you were looking to open a specific type of professional business, such as medical or educational.
One requirement you will need for a tobacco license (in most states) would be a state sales tax vendor id, so you would have to obtain this first before applying for a tobacco license.
