Tax Authorities

Organized criminal groups, including those with ties to terrorist organizations, have increasingly engaged in the illegal trafficking of tobacco products, particularly counterfeit cigarettes

Ashton Potter can build a tax stamp program uniquely crafted to meet each tax authority’s individual requirements. With high security tax stamps, mass serialization, and iTracknTrace™, law enforcement officials can scan tobacco products wherever they find them, identify the distributor that applied the stamp and initially sold them and obtain other hidden information useful for tracking, tracing and enforcement purposes.
