Arizona licensed tobacco distributors are required to electronically submit all documents to the Department through Arizona Luxury Tax Online (“ALTO”). Documents include monthly tax returns and reports, license applications and renewals, refund and rebate requests, and cigarette stamp orders.
The payment of tobacco taxes, license application fees, and cigarette stamp orders must be made by electronic funds transfer (“EFT”) through ALTO.
State law requires any person who ships, sells or transfers cigarettes or roll-your-own tobacco into Arizona to electronically file a report with the Department through ALTO. The Department may consider reports filed pursuant to the federal Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act (“PACT Act”) as satisfaction of this statutory requirement when filed electronically.
