(1) The operator or promoter con- 11 tracting with persons for participation in a promoter sponsored event, as a 12 prerequisite to renting or leasing space to any person for conducting business 13 as a retailer on any premises owned or controlled by that operator or pro- 14 moter, shall obtain: 15 (a) Written evidence that the retailer holds a valid seller's permit 16 issued pursuant to this chapter or will apply to the state tax commission 17 for a regular or temporary seller's permit; or 18 (b) A written statement from the retailer that the retailer is not offer- 19 ing for sale any item that is taxable under this chapter or is otherwise 20 not required to hold a valid seller's permit. 21 (2) Such written evidence or statements shall be in such form and contain 22 such information as the state tax commission shall require, and shall include 23 the retailer's taxpayer identification number. The operator or promoter shall 24 submit the documents to the state tax commission within ten (10) days follow- 25 ing the beginning of the event. 26 (3) (a) The state tax commission may appoint a sponsor or promoter as its 27 agent for issuing temporary seller's permits to participants in the event 28 and for accounting for such permits. 29 (b) A sponsor or promoter appointed to issue temporary permits under this 30 subsection shall be entitled to a credit or refund of income or franchise 31 taxes imposed under chapter 30, title 63, Idaho Code, in the amount of one 32 dollar ($1.00) for each such temporary permit issued by the sponsor or 33 promoter during the taxable year. 34 (4) Any operator or promoter of a promoter sponsored event who fails to 35 comply with this section may be subject to a minimum penalty of fifty dollars 36 ($50.00) per event and twenty-five dollars ($25.00) for each seller over two 37 (2) sellers for whom such records required by subsection (1) of this section 38 are not obtained, but not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000) for each 39 such event. Under no circumstances, shall an operator or a promoter be respon- 40 sible for sales or use tax not remitted by a retailer at a promoter sponsored 41 event. 42 (5) The penalties provided in subsection (4) of this section shall not 43 apply: 2 1 (a) Unless the state tax commission shall have previously given notice to 2 the operator or promoter or its officer, agent or employee, by certified 3 mail, of the requirements of this section and of a violation of this sec- 4 tion by the operator or promoter or its officer, agent or employee; or 5 (b) If the operator or promoter shows that such failure was due to rea- 6 sonable cause and not to willful neglect. 7 (6) The state tax commission shall give notice of any penalty provided in 8 this section and it shall assess such penalties in the manner provided for 9 deficiencies of tax. 10 (7) "Promoter sponsored event," as used in this section, means a swap 11 meet, flea market, gun show, fair or similar activity involving a series of 12 sales sufficient in number, scope and character to constitute a regular course 13 of business; or any event at which two (2) or more persons offer tangible per- 14 sonal property or services for sale or exchange and at which a fee is charged 15 for the privilege of offering the services or displaying the property for sale 16 or exchange; or at which a fee is charged to prospective buyers for admission 17 to the area where the property or services are offered or displayed for sale 18 or exchange. 19 SECTION 2. An emergency existing therefor, which emergency is hereby 20 declared to exist, this act shall be in full force and effect on and after its 21 passage and approval.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS 10087 The purpose of this legislation is to ensure that Idaho Code is clear on the intent and implementation of the "Promoter Sponsored Sales Tax", which was instituted in HB 124 in the 1999 Session. The intent was to have the event promoter establish that any vendor who offered taxable items for sale at the event had a current sales tax permit from the Idaho State Tax Commission or obtained a temporary permit from the promoter of the event. There in no responsibility or liability on the part of the promoter for payment of said sales tax. Once the promoter completes the paperwork, the responsibility shifts to the vendor, who is responsible and answerable to the tax commission. Conversely, it is the tax commission's responsibility to pursue tax collection from the vendor. FISCAL IMPACT There is no fiscal impact as a result of this change in code.
