Show Floor Sales
Active selling or order-taking by exhibitor is NOT permitted at the event with the exception of books and publications.
Any exhibiting company that intends to sell or lease tangible personal property that would ordinarily be subject to sales tax if sold at retail is required to collect and remit city and state sales taxes. Illinois State law requires exhibiting companies to acquire a valid Illinois Sales and Use Tax Permit.
Exhibitors may obtain a temporary Seller's Permit online at https://mytax.illinois.gov/_/.
It is the obligation of the exhibitor to obtain all permits. There is no fee for the permit. Please note that operating without a permit can be costly. The Illinois Comptroller of Public Accounts may access daily penalties for operating without a permit.
