Or. Admin. R. 150-323-0180 - Segregation of Cigarette Inventories

Current through Register Vol. 61, No. 4, April 1, 2022

(1) The following rules apply to inventories of cigarettes held by distributors:
(a) Untaxed cigarettes must be stored in an area separate from cigarettes bearing tax stamps.
(b) Cigarettes stamped with the tax stamp of another state must be stored in a separate area from cigarettes bearing an Oregon tax stamp.
(2) Any dealer who serves as the dealers own distributor or who buys directly from a manufacturer and is licensed as a distributor must maintain strict separation of the wholesale and retail stocks of cigarettes and must maintain separate records of the wholesale portion of the business and keep such records, including invoices, separate and apart for the inspection of the wholesale business by the Department of Revenue. The records must show the amount of stamps purchased, stamps affixed, records of purchases of cigarettes and of all sales, whether the dealer is also acting as a distributor or retailer or selling to another retailer.
(3) The requirement to segregate cases or cartons of cigarettes under subsections (1) and (2) of this rule is satisfied if the distributor or dealer keeps the stocks of cigarettes separated by clearly marking the cases or cartons of cigarettes indicating whether the packs of cigarettes inside are taxed or untaxed, and whether they are wholesale or retail stock.
