Tobacco Products Electronic Renewal 

The Department of Revenue has introduced electronic tobacco products license renewal.

Licensees must visit e-TIDES, the department’s electronic business tax filing system, to renew and pay for tobacco products licenses. The department will no longer be mailing or accepting REV-821 Tobacco License Renewal forms. 

Through the e-TIDES website, licensees will have the ability to:

  • Renew tobacco products licenses.
  • Update current license information.  
  • Add and remove vending locations.
  • Remit license payments.
  • Cancel licenses.

Please note: a new PA-100 Enterprise Registration Form is still required if a new license type is being requested.

Also, the department will no longer be issuing vending machine decals. Instead, the department is transitioning to a paper Tobacco Products Vending Location License. Licenses must be affixed and prominently displayed on machines at the locations for which they are issued.  

e-TIDES registration and license renewal instructions are available on e-TIDES. If you have any questions or need assistance, please email the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue at
