|Brand Code Table||October 30, 2019||Download||This Brand Code Table is prepared based on information provided to the Federation of Tax Administrators’ (FTA) Workgroup by the tobacco manufacturers (except where noted). FTA does not assume responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of this information. This list should not and cannot be used to determine whether particular tobacco products are legal for sale in any particular State or which manufacturer is the fabricator of listed tobacco products. Persons using this table should consult specific State laws and directories in determining which brand families, or brand styles are legal for sale.|
The FTA Tobacco Uniformity Committee has developed the revised PACT Act forms, State Cigarette PACT Act report (PA-1) and State Tobacco PACT Act report (PA-2), effective March, 2021. The Tobacco Uniformity Committee has approved these revised PDF and Excel versions of the forms. These are forms for the states that accept paper filing and have not yet fully adopted the electronic reporting using the FTA Tobacco Uniformity electronic XML filing schema.
Note: The FTA Tobacco Uniformity electronic XML filing schema captures all data a state may need for all reports/files/returns (such as PACT, MSA, etc.).
