Fair Funding

Effective July 1, 2018, if you are a retailer who makes sales of tangible personal property on the real property of a California state-designated fair ("state-designated fairground"), you must separately state the amount of those sales on your Sales and Use Tax return as required under Assembly Bill 1499 (AB 1499) (Chapter 798, Stats. 2017).

But what does that mean?! And how do we report it?

Here we'll answer your questions and provide you with the necessary resources to meet the reporting requirement and support the fairgrounds that you do business at.
