Belmont County Auditor - Andrew L. Sutak

Retail and Wholesale Cigarette Licenses

All retail cigarette dealers must file an application and pay the $125.00 fee to the County Auditor to obtain a Retail Cigarette License, which authorize the sale of cigarettes at the address of the business designated on the license.

The Cigarette License will expire on the fourth Monday in May of each year. A new business applying for a license will pay a prorated fee, since the license will expire in May.

All wholesale cigarette dealers must file an application and pay the $1,000.00 fee to the Ohio Department of Taxation. A wholesale license can no longer be purchased from the County Auditor.
