Brand Code Table

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.
