NEW TAX LAWS:
Farmers’ market vendors are now required to obtain a Certificate of Registration (CoR) from the NC Department of Revenue, even if they do not assess sales tax for any of the items they sell. Vendors can obtain a CoR by completing Form NC-BR. The Department of Revenue requires vendors who exclusively sell tax exempt items to file a return reflecting $0.00 in tax due for the filing period. Click here for details.
Vendors applying to sell with us for the 2014 season are required to provide their CoR number on their Vendor Application Form and will be required to display their certificates of registration at their booths.
