Cigarette Licenses

Anyone who sells or transports cigarettes within Ross County must obtain a yearly Retail Cigarette Dealer’s License from the Auditor's Office in conjunction with a Vendor's License. A Retail Cigarette Dealer's License costs $125 per year (or a pro-rated fee if purchased in person after the 3rd Monday in June) and is good from the 4th Monday in May to the 4th Monday in May of the following year. Once issued, the license number and business information are kept on file at the county. Annual renewal forms are mailed out at the beginning of each May.

Wholesale Cigarette Dealer’s Licenses can only be obtained from the State of Ohio. Additional information is available on the Ohio Department of Taxation website.
