Commercial cigarette making machine
A Commercial Cigarette Making Machine endorsement is required for each location where one or more machines are provided to retail customers to produce 'Roll Your Own' cigarettes. Cigarette Retailer and Tobacco Products Retailer endorsements are also required.
Required tax stamps
After your endorsement has been approved you must purchase and attach Roll Your Own cigarette tax stamps for the cigarettes produced through the cigarette making machine. Contact the Department of Revenue Special Programs Division for information on obtaining the tax stamps at (360) 534-1503, and request option 3.
Post your license
A license must be posted at each location where the licensee operates. You may not begin this business activity until you receive a Business License listing the required endorsement(s).
