The City of Roanoke imposes a tax upon each and every sale of cigarettes that occurs within the city. The tax must be paid by seller or dealer through the purchase of stamps from the City Treasurer's Office.
Cigarette packs must be marked with both a city cigarette tax stamp and a State of Virginia tax stamp before offering cigarettes for sale to the public. To obtain city cigarette tax stamps, contact the City Treasurer's Office at 540-853-2561. For information on State of Virginia Cigarette Tax Stamps, call 804-367-8465.
