[NR] looking for info for Tax info dealing with merchants

Upon rereading this I do have a suggestion if people would listen and hear
me out. I am for one willing to help but not be.... swept under the mat so I
can not merchant anymore. Why not impose a slight and I do mean slight extra
fee on merchants to help cover the cost of the 50$ fee the sca is being
charged for merchants (the local office said this is the first time they had
ever heard of this because to quote them the SCA isnt what is prospering
over the merchants and since the SCA is a non profit group are supposed to
be outside the new taxlaw). And for my earlier post I apologize I thought
you were saying we had to pay the 50$. but still honestly how has this
affected merchanting in Oklahoma?
