1. If you sell in Arizona, you have a regular sales tax license -
and must file a monthly report. They don't have anything such as
a Special Event License, and the promoters do not collect tax from
you and pay the state to avoid dealing with the state. "
Actually, I got them to let me file on a yearly basis. I explained
to them that I only do two shows there a year and that it was a real
pain to send in monthly tax forms (especially when the never provide
an envelope - one more thing for the list of AZ problems). All I had
to do was ask and they moved me to annual status.
I have to agree with Judy though. If it weren’t for the annual show
in Quartzsite, I’d never do business in Arizona. The taxes are too
high and the requirements are too stringent. It’s much easier to do
business at shows in Nevada. You fill out a temporary tax form, give
the show promoter a check for the tax amount due (made out to the
State of course) and you’re all done.
