Sales Tax Permit for the Garage Sale
New State Law requires each vendor to have a Texas Sales Tax Permit. Each vendor will need to have a permit or a copy of their permit prior to filling out the contract and selecting a booth. Each individual has to apply for their own sales tax permit. Townsquare Media will be providing copies of each permit to the Comptroller of Public Accounts prior to the event.
Each vendor will need to obtain an application at www.window.state.tx.us or visit the local office of Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts – Amarillo Enforcement Office at 7120 I-40 West, Suite 220, Amarillo, TX 79106. There is not a fee for applying. If you visit the local office they will issue the permit that day. If the application is mailed to the local office it will take up to 3-4 business days to receive the permit. If the application is mailed to the Austin office it can take 3-4 weeks to receive the permit.
You may also contact the local Comptroller office at 806-358-0148 for any questions or concerns.
