Ahh and how many merchants are doing this? Has this not killed merchanting
in oklahoma? Cause I aint paying yopu 50$ on top of site fees and such for
yet another permoit when I have a flee market permit which is supposed to
cover sca events as well as a Tax id as well as a business lisc. I dont have
this problem at ren faires. As a lisc tax id holder only i am liable for my
tax information and sales tax. I have done checked and asked the local tax
office anything more is done by the sca.
