Thermal Vs Digital Stamping
Currently, most State’s stamps are applied by heat transfer machines. However, Digital Tax Stamps are “pressure sensitive” which requires a specialized machine to apply and track these stamps. These digital stamps are ‘smarter’ and contain a unique non-repeating code that can be read by device which identified the taxed product. It will also contain other security and enforcement features as determined by the Department of Treasury.
