RETAIL LICENSE/TAX LAW
SC Code Section 12-36-510(A)(2) provides for a $20.00 license for artists and craftsmen. Every artist/craftsman selling at arts and crafts shows or festivals, products they have created or assembled, should obtain a retail license and pay a license tax of $20.00 at the time of application. This license may be used for one location at a time. The only one exception to these licensing requirements is for sellers at a ‘special event’, defined as a promotional show, trade show, fair, or carnival for which an admission fee is required of the general public for entering the event. The event must be operated for less than twelve (12) consecutive days. Sellers must file a ‘special event sales tax return’, but are not required to obtain a license. This may be used for only one special event and the return must be filed together with the tax due within five (5) days of the completion of the event, however, the Department may require payment on demand. Revenue Procedure #91-1 defines ‘one-time basis’ for the purpose of being eligible to file the special events return in lieu of obtaining a retail license. The Department will consider the seller’s activity in the State during the previous twelve (12) months and the intended activity during the twelve (12) months following the proposed special event. Any activity or intended activity, in the State during this twenty-four (24) month period will require the retailer to obtain license.
