We have been receiving many inquiries regarding some of the supporting documents required for the new Tobacco Products Act.

ALL APPLICANTS:  Zoning Statement required from the local government:

  • If this is not available at the time of application, it will need to be submitted prior to getting license renewed.
  • Application for NEW locations that were not selling tobacco products as of January 1, 2020, will need to submit the zoning statement prior to a license being issued.

TAX CLEARANCE FOR MANUFACTURERS and DISTRIBUTORS ONLY:  The Taxation and Revenue Department issues a Letter of Good Standing. Businesses that file online can also generate this letter online (called a Compliance Letter in the TAP system). The ABC Director will accept this unsigned copy.  Note: The Letter will not be generated if the business is not in compliance.

  • Retail license applicants DO NOT need to provide this letter.
