Regular vendor’s licenses are obtained at the Auditor’s office. That kind of license is issued to vendors with a fixed place of business.  The application fee is $25.00 with no yearly renewal fee. A new law allows for the transfer of a vendor’s license to another location within the same county. You may obtain a request for transfer of a vendor’s license form STE-TL at your county Auditor’s office.

The definition of a transient vendor’s license has been expanded to cover those sales that were previously covered by a limited vendor’s license. The application fee for a transient vendor’s license has been reduced to $25.00. Only the Department of Taxation issues a transient vendor’s license.  Application form can be obtained from the County Auditor’s office.

Vendor’s licenses are not transferable.  A new license is required if you incorporate or add a partner. However, if you change your trade name or D.B.A. A new license is not required.

You need a vendor’s license if your business is sales based on delivery of goods and certain services at a consumer’s location, or if you provide services such as computer services, landscaping, private investigation, 900 numbers, exterminating service, building maintenance, janitorial service, employment service, etc. You need a Transient vendor’s license if you transport stock of goods to temporary places of business in order to make sales.

In addition, the Tobacco Tax Act requires retail dealers of tobacco to have a vendor permit under the Retail Sales Tax Act when purchasing tobacco products from a wholesaler or selling to consumers.

It varies - some areas require a special vendor's license, others rent space to vendors instead. You'll probably need to start by applying for a license for the city market where you intend to have your first stall, and then go from there. Good luck with your selling.
