Tobacco License list

HBI is a nationwide tobacco distributor.  We ship to all US States, territories and protectorates and are licensed to collect tobacco tax in the following states.

Please note, HBI is not required to and does not have a license to collect tobacco taxes in every state. If your state is not referenced on the list below, you are personally responsible for reporting and paying any applicable tobacco taxes! You may also view your sales invoice to see if any tobacco taxes were accounted for. If HBI is not licensed in your individual state, HBI is not authorized to collect tobacco taxes on behalf of your respective state. Please check with your state’s Department of Revenue Office for more information

Due to variations in state and federal tobacco tax regulations, effective immediately HBI’s Terms and Conditions relating to tobacco tax collection have been revised and are attached hereto. view/download this PDF
