We consider stochastic impulse control problems when the impulses cost functions depend on $ t $ and $ x $. We use the approximation scheme and viscosity solutions approach to show that the value function is a unique viscosity solution for the associated Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation (HJB) partial differential equation (PDE) of stochastic impulse control problems.
