Montana Department of Revenue to inspect stores for licenses to sell vapor products

Helena – The Montana Department of Revenue will start retail inspections in March to make sure stores that are selling alternative nicotine or vapor products have a license to sell them.

The license requirement took effect January 1, 2016. Since then, the department has issued 680 alternative nicotine or vapor product licenses. About one-third of retail businesses licensed to sell tobacco have also applied to sell vapor products.

In December, the department mailed 1,800 postcards to retail outlets telling them about the requirement to have the license to sell the products. Visit revenue.mt.gov for frequently asked questions about the requirement.

There is a $5 fee to apply for the new license. You can apply and pay online through our eStop Business Licenses service at http://revenue.mt.gov/home/businesses/estop_licensing.

If you prefer, you can mail in your application using our fillable Form MA - Master Application Form for eStop Licenses, which you can download at this link: http://revenue.mt.gov/Portals/9/businesses/eStop_licensing/Form_MA.pdf

Mail your payment and completed form to eStop Business Licenses, PO Box 8003, Helena, MT 59604-8003.

If retailers have questions or need help applying, they can contact our customer service center by email at DOReStop@mt.gov, call toll free at 1 (866) 859-2254 (in Helena 444-6900), or visit revenue.mt.gov.
