About Cigarette & Tobacco Permits
Cigarette / tobacco permits in Iowa are issued locally by city clerks and county auditors. Establishments within a city's limits may apply for a tobacco permit with the city clerk, while those businesses located in unincorporated areas may apply for a tobacco permit with the county auditor.
The annual fee is $100 ($25 / quarter). All permits expire annually on June 30.
