If you sell taxable merchandise or provide a
taxable service in California, on a temporary basis, you must have
a seller’s permit. Wholesalers as well as retailers must have
a separate permit for each place of business. (Temporary is understood
to mean one month or less.)
The following link includes information you need
to obtain a permit as well as a brief description of your rights and
responsibilities once the permit is obtained. If you have any questions, please call their Customer Service Center at 1-800-400-7115 (CRS:711). Customer service representatives are available Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Pacific time), except state holidays.
The above is provided for INFORMATION ONLY
and may not reflect the latest State of California regulations.
It is the responsibility of each
individual to confirm the regulations as it applies to them and secure
a permit on their own.
Note: Non-compliance is NOT an option. The
promoter of most events requires us to provide them with copies of
all BOE permits, which we must do in order to secure the booth space.
