The Business License, Tax, and Fee Waiver benefit waives municipal, county, and state business license fees, taxes, and fees for veterans who hawk, peddle, or vend any goods, wares, or merchandise owned by the veteran, except spirituous, malt, vinous, or other intoxicating liquor, including sales from a fixed location.
California has two separate property tax exemptions: one for veterans and one for disabled veterans.
If you are a qualified itinerant veteran vendor, you are the consumer of items owned and sold, except alcoholic beverages or items sold for more than $100, and you are not required to hold a seller’s permit. Instead, you must pay sales tax on your purchases of all taxable items that you intend to sell.
If you are a nonprofit veterans’ organization that makes sales of merchandise or goods, you are required to register for a seller’s permit. Generally, items you sell are taxable.
Effective January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2019, owners of mobile homes and manufactured homes who are currently not the registered owner on record are eligible to apply for registration or conditional registration with a fee and tax waiver from the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD).
