Wholesalers, distributors and/or retailers who choose to affix cigarette stamps to packs of cigarettes must first obtain a Cigarette and Tobacco license by submitting a completed Form TC-69, Utah State Business and Tax Registration application, with the minimum $500 cash bond (a higher bond may be required based on activity).
Every pack of cigarettes must be stamped before it can be legally offered for sale in Utah.
Cigarettes must have the correct stamp affixed within 72 hours of receipt by wholesalers, distributors or retailers in Utah.
There are two classes of cigarette manufacturers, a participating manufacturer (PM) and a non-participating manufacturer (NPM).
To identify NPM products, click here: Publication 51, Utah Approved Tobacco Manufacturers and Cigarette/RYO Brands.
Stamps are purchased from the Tax Commission.
