If you fail to let the Vendor Coordinator know ahead of time of your power needs, power will not be able to be provided day of event.

Important Vendor Information

Temporary Business License for City of Redding The City of Redding requires a temporary license for you to sell within the city limits. Please select “City of Redding Business License” from the menu at left of application information on City’s website. While the application is generic and is not necessarily designed for temporary vendor licenses, we highly recommend that you call the City Clerk’s Office to obtain detailed information and pricing. City of Redding Temporary Business License City Clerks Office (530) 225-4056. The basic license starts at a fee of $13.50, but if you are a professional service or amusement those fees will be higher. NOTE: The City Clerk’s Office is typically closed every other Friday.

California Sales Tax Number Requirement
Merchandise vendors please note: You must have a California Sales Tax Number (Resale #) before your application will be accepted. Please send your application in to the State Board two-four weeks before the event. Information can be obtained at the following website: http://www.boe.ca.gov/info/reg.htm

California Sales and Use Tax: The State of California has a sales use tax minimum fee (MTF) of $800 for certain S corporations, LLC’s and Partnerships. Please have your tax accountant look at (Article 17, Regulation 1684) if you are not from California. There also appears to be exceptions to this MTF:

  • They did not conduct any business in California during the tax year.
  • Their tax year was 15 days or less.
  • Individuals and Sole Proprietors do not appear to have this minimum tax fee (MTF) but are all subject to the standard tax laws of the minimum gross revenue/income filing amounts.

Again, we look forward to your participation in the Kool April Nites 2022 Classic Car Show.
