January Department of Taxation Vendor Application

Online Exhibitor Manual:  


Ohio law requires any person or business making retail sales of tangible personal property or taxable services to obtain a vendor’s license. The proper vendor’s license is determined by the type of sale and where the sale takes place. There is a one time fee of $25.00 for most vendor’s licenses. A vendor’s license remains valid until it is cancelled or revoked.

How to apply
County Vendor’s License Applicationform ST-1
You must have an active county vendor’s license for each fixed place of business from which taxable retail sales are made. County vendor’s licenses are most commonly used for businesses that have a fixed location where customers visit, such as retail stores and restaurants. 
Transient Vendor’s License- form ST 1T
A transient license can be used statewide. This license is for retailers who transport stock(s) of goods to temporary places of business in order to make sales. Some of the most common types of sales that require a transient vendor’s license are made at flea markets, and arts, or crafts shows.

You are also able to apply by printing an application from the Ohio Department of Taxation’s website tax forms section and mailing in the application with your payment. The form titles are listed below in the vendor’s license details section.
