The Nebraska Department of Revenue recently issued a reminder that sales tax applies to sales made at craft fairs and similar events.

Persons selling tangible personal property at craft fairs, art shows, flea markets, trade shows, and similar events must collect tax on sales. It does not matter if the Internal Revenue Service considers the seller's activity to be a hobby or a recreational activity. Unless the seller only sells exempt items such as fruits, vegetables, or bakery items, the seller must get a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

These sellers must separately state the charge for sales tax on their receipts. Sellers are generally not allowed to advertise or imply that they will assume or absorb the sales tax or that they will not add the tax to the selling price. There are limited exceptions to this rule for sales of prepared food or admissions.
