This webpage is designed to assist promoters and vendors in complying with current laws and rules. In case of inconsistency or omission, the Arizona Revised Statutes and/or the Arizona Administrative Code will prevail over the language in this publication.
Per ARS §42-1105 G., the operator of a swap meet, flea market, fair, carnival, festival, circus or other transient selling event is required to maintain a current list of vendors conducting business on the premises as sellers. The list shall include each vendor’s name, business name and business address. The department may require an operator, on written notice, to submit a copy of the list to the department at any time. In addition, the operator should inform the department if the sales are conducted through a central cash register.
Taxpayers conducting a special event, swap meet or arts and crafts show may need an Arizona Transaction Privilege & Use Tax (TPT) license. Taxpayers who employ personnel other than family members during the special event may also need to register for Arizona withholding tax.
