Ohio Revised Code doesn’t specifically define a fixed location, but ORC 5739.17(D) states: “[a location is] not temporary if the same person conducted business at the place continuously for more than six months or occupied the premises as the person’s permanent residence for more than six months, or if the person intends it to be a fixed place of business.”
The taxpayer will close the Transient Vendor’s license and apply for a County Vendor’s license. The different county rates should still be charged and reported separately on the County Vendor’s license.
Providing the taxpayer maintains one centralized location from which sales are made, a County Vendor’s license should be obtained. The different county rates should still be charged and reported separately on the County Vendor’s license.
No. A vendor that already holds one or both of these license types will continue to report its sales tax under its current licenses. The elimination of these two types of licenses affects only vendors that register after September 1, 2012.
