Selling at the Flea Market
Even though things look relaxed at the flea market, your duties are not. You will need to comply 100% with the legal licensing requirements.
So, first, select your Flea Market Business business structure: Like all businesses, you can choose from a Sole Proprietor, Partnership, LLC or Corporation.
Choosing the business legal structure is important because all tax IDs and other legal documents are filed under the type of legal structure.
It makes a big difference filing as a sole owner and filing as an LLC, for example.
Then, a seller's permit is required if you sell flea market merchandise wholesale or retail.
In fact, most of the items sold at a flea market, even food is taxable so you need a seller's permit.
Now let us say you hire a couple of guys to help you sell stuff at the flea market.
If so, you will be considered an employer and you will need a federal employer Number and a State Employer Number.
Users of a trade name will need a fictitious business name filing.
Finally, even if you are just a sole owner, and a small business, you have the option or incorporating or forming an LLC. If you do, you will not have to file a DBA.
