Checking ID

You must check photo ID of everyone appearing under age 27 who attempts to purchase tobacco products and verify the customer is of legal age to purchase. This is an each-and-every time requirement (even if you know the person to be of legal are). If you "carded" them yesterday, you must "card" them again today!

Decline a sale when the customer is underage, has no photo ID, the photo ID contains no date of birth or the photo ID has expired.
