*All vendors selling new or used merchandise within the State of Pennsylvania are required by law to have a Pennsylvania State Sales Tax License (see PA Department of Revenue law on next page). Even if a vendor sells only once or twice a year, it is still necessary to have a license because, according to the law, the sales are in competition with other vendors also selling. There is no fee involved in obtaining a license.  If you have any questions or need assistance in filing, call the Harrisburg, PA State Tax Office   at 717‐425‐7700.
