    Craft show tax numbers in Illinois

    Those of you that do craft shows, what type of tax number should I apply for. Thanks.

    I think it would depend on the state in which you are selling. Most states have a sales tax, so you would need a sales tax number.

    Perhaps someone from Illinois will respond....here in Texas, you contact the State Comptroller's office or go to their website and follow the process. You will have to obtain a resale certificate, then report and send the tax collected to the State. Check with your craft show organizers and call your comptroller's office. Tell them this is once a year craft show that you do. Unfortunately, in my state, once you get the number, you have to file quarterly reports from now on...even if you are not selling anything. Waste of time and expense. In your case, you have to collect the tax according to their rules. It would be great if you could do a one time submission. Or perhaps you are going to continue selling throughout the year. Best wishes and have fun!

    Normally, there is a number on the website that you can call if you are unsure of how to apply or what to apply for. When I applied for one in Texas for our business, it was pretty self explanatory.

    Here in California, you need a resale permit from the state and then each city has a different sales tax. The person putting on the show usually has a chart of the sales tax for the city that you are in. We also sometimes have to apply for a seller/business license in each city that we sell items.
