Frequently Asked Questions
Must the promoter list all participating vendors?
Yes. The promoter must provide the State of Louisiana with a list of all participating sellers, including those whose sales may be exempt from sales tax or those only displaying and not selling merchandise. For reporting purposes, a vendor includes anyone making sales, providing displays, or otherwise engaging in promotional activities.
The promoter should provide a vendor list of participants to each taxing authority two weeks prior to the event, preferably in Excel spreadsheet format. The list of vendors should include the following:
- Name of Booth
- Owner of Booth
- Address of booth owner
- Phone number to contact owner of booth
- Email address for booth owner (if available)
- Type of sales booth will provide (ex: food, crafts, carnival rides, etc.)
