Frequently Asked Questions
Why are state and local tax agents collecting on-site?
Special events are a unique kind of business in which vendors sell items to the public at fairs, festivals, flea markets, or craft shows. Many times, the only fair and efficient way to collect the proper taxes is to have our sales tax agents personally register each vendor and collect taxes at the event. Our agents may collect taxes daily or at the end of an event to ensure that we have collected the tax due from out-of-state or transient merchants before an event has ended.
