Transferring tobacco license

Asked by: Catina - 14 February, 2012 We are buying a business with a current tobacco license. Can we transfer that license into our name, or do we have to obtain a new one? This business is located in Pennsylvania.
Answered by: Mary Dubitsky - 14 February, 2012 Dear Catina,

Tobacco wholesales, retailers and vending machine operators must be licensed as dealers by the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue. These licenses are not transferable, so when business ownership is transferred, the new owner is responsible for obtaining a new tobacco license.

For more information please visit our Pennsylvania Retail Tobacco License page. Our experts will guide you through the process to ensure your business holds the proper license.
