Non-Settling Manufacturer Report to the Attorney General

Under House Bill 3536, which was enacted during the 83rd Regular Legislative Session and takes effect September 1, 2013, non-settling manufacturers that offer cigarettes or cigarette tobacco products for sale or distribution in Texas, or that may begin to do so in the future, must provide certain information to the Attorney General. If a non-settling manufacturer is offering cigarettes or cigarette tobacco products for sale or distribution in Texas on September 1, 2013, the manufacturer must report certain information to the Attorney General no later than September 30, 2013. If a non-settling manufacturer is not offering cigarettes or cigarette tobacco products for sale or distribution in Texas on September 1, 2013, certain information must be provided to the Attorney General before the manufacturer begins doing so. The form for both types of Non-Settling Manufacturer Report can be downloaded from this page. Please see Texas Health & Safety Code section 161.602 for definitions of terms used in the Reports.

Note: the information reported to the Attorney General will be made available to the Comptroller of Public Accounts, and this report does not take the place of any required reporting or other obligations to the Comptroller of Public Accounts, including but not limited to the procedures necessary to be treated as a Subsequent Participating Manufacturer under Texas Health & Safety Code section 161.602(14).

Additional information regarding reporting and other obligations to the Comptroller of Public Accounts may be found on the Texas Comptrollers Website.
