IMPORTANT: Requirements to Renew Your Manufacturer's Permit
October 2006

Your Texas Renewal Application for Cigarette, Cigar, and Tobacco Products Manufacturer's Permit is enclosed. In order to renew your permit, you must:

  • be current in all taxes collected by the Comptroller's office;
  • be current in all cigarette and/or tobacco related reporting requirements;
  • submit your most current published list prices regarding your products;
  • submit your permit renewal fee; and
  • sign and return the application packet.

Operating without a valid permit is subject to a penalty of not more than $2000 for each violation. A separate offense is committed each day of which a violation occurs.

All manufacturers selling cigarette and/or tobacco related products to a permit holder in Texas must submit to the Comptroller's office, on or before the last day of each month, all sales in Texas and a current product price list for the previous month.
