  • § 9707. Registration

    (a) Before commencing business or opening new places of business, every person required to collect any tax imposed by this chapter and every person purchasing tangible personal property for resale shall apply for a license in the manner prescribed by the Commissioner. The Commissioner shall issue, without charge, to each registrant a license empowering him or her to collect the tax. Each license shall state the place of business to which it is applicable. The license shall be prominently displayed in the place of business of the registrant. A registrant who has no regular place of doing business shall attach the license to his or her cart, stand, truck, or other merchandising device, or carry it on his or her person. The licenses shall be nonassignable and nontransferable and shall be surrendered to the Commissioner immediately upon the registrant's ceasing to do business at the place named.

    (b) No later than one business day prior to an event at which taxable sales will be made by vendors who have no permanent place of business in the state, the promoter of the event shall provide to the Commissioner a list of vendors who are authorized by the promoter to sell taxable property at the event and the vendors' current sales tax license numbers. No later than one week after the event the promoter shall notify the Department in writing of any changes to the list of participating vendors and their sales tax license numbers. In this subsection, "event" means a specific time and location at which 25 or more vendors are authorized by the promoter to sell taxable items.

    (c) Any person who is not otherwise required to collect any tax imposed by this chapter and who makes sales to persons within the state of tangible personal property or services, the use of which is subject to tax under this chapter, may register with the Commissioner who may, in his or her discretion and subject to such conditions as he or she may impose, issue to him or her a certificate of authority to collect the compensating use tax imposed by this chapter.
