Montana Lottery joins Department of Revenue eStop Licensing Program
HELENA – The Montana Lottery is pleased to be partnering with the Department of Revenue eStop Licensing program to better serve the needs of Lottery retailers.
Effective July 24, 2015, new and existing retailers can go to www.eStop.mt.gov to renew and pay for Lottery licenses online.
The process is simple, convenient and secure. This service allows businesses to apply or renew up to eight state licenses at once, with one payment. This method of licensing is convenient and helps streamline the licensing process, reducing cost to businesses and government.
There are two payment methods available for businesses to pay for their licenses. They can pay and renew online at www.eStop.mt.gov or mail in a check. Paying online allows business to track the application process and ensure the application is complete.
With the inclusion of the Montana Lottery in the eStop program, the licenses available in the program include Underground Storage Tanks, Food Purveyor, Beer and Wine Retail Sales, Tobacco Retail and Wholesale, Nursery, Petroleum Dealer (Meters) and Weighing Device (scales). One-stop license renewal and payment helps Montana businesses succeed and fosters a prosperous business climate, which is a key component of Governor Steve Bullock’s Main Street Montana Project.
The Montana Lottery was created by referendum in 1986. Since then, it has paid over $483 million in prizes and returned approximately $217 million to the State of Montana.
