Or. Admin. R. 150-323-0070 - Denial of a Cigarette Distributor's License

(1) Any person engaging or seeking to engage in the sale of cigarettes as a distributor as defined in ORS 323.015 must obtain a cigarette distributor's license. A distributor must obtain a license for each place of business at which the distributor engages in the sale of cigarettes.
(2) The Department of Revenue may deny a license application if there is false or incomplete information on the application or if the department determines that the applicant will not comply with the provisions of ORS 323.005 to 323.482. When deciding whether to deny a distributor's license, the department may consider, but is not limited to, the following factors:
(a) Whether the applicant has previously failed to pay a tobacco related tax or any other tax administered by the Oregon Department of Revenue;
(b) Whether the applicant has engaged in conduct punishable as a crime under ORS Chapter 323 or any other state's or federal tobacco laws; or
(c) Whether the applicant has violated any part of ORS Chapter 323 or any rule adopted under that chapter;
(3) If the applicant is other than an individual, the department will apply the factors described in subsection (1) both to the applicant and, if the applicant is an organization, to the individual(s) within the organization with the primary responsibility for the payment of the cigarette taxes on behalf of the applicant;
(4) If the department denies a license application the applicant has 30 calendar days from the date of denial to file an appeal in the manner provided in ORS 305.404 to 305.560.
