Arts and Crafts
craftsmen will need to charge and collect the 6% statewide Sales and Use Tax, along with any applicable local taxes, for the products that they have created or assembled and plan to sell at craft shows and festivals.
Artist & Craftsman License ($20) vs. Retail License ($50)
If you are selling your products at a craft show or festival more than four times each fiscal year, you must apply for an Artist & Craftsman License ($20 non-refundable fee). We recommend applying using the MyDORWAY Business Tax Application.
If you plan to sell your products anywhere other than at craft shows and festivals, including online sales, you must apply for a
Retail License ($50 non-refundable fee).
If you are only selling at craft shows or festivals no more than four times each fiscal year, and the craft show or festival operates for only 11 consecutives days or less, you do not need an Artist & Craftsman License or Retail License.
