Who has to be permitted with the Department of Revenue?
The tax is levied on the first sale or upon import of dyed diesel fuel, dyed kerosene, or lubricating oil, so anyone that is the first seller in Alabama or the importer will need to be permitted. Also, if you have exempt sales, you will need to be permitted. There is also a provision in the law for exempt sales between inspection fee permit holders. If you wish to be permitted, you will have to submit an application. Any suppliers or permissive suppliers selling directly to a licensed exempt entity at the rack will need to be permitted.

No. However, the cigarette tax stamp ordering system is not tied to consignment balances. Therefore, state consignment customers must be aware of their available consignment balance and place orders within their bond limit. Failure to do so will result in the stamp order being modified to accommodate the available balance.
