Rhode Island is now sales tax-free on fine art!
The RI Division of Taxation and RI State Council on the Arts have provided Wickford Art Association details concerning the new legislation which exempts original and limited edition artwork from sales tax in all of Rhode Island. Please read their guidelines carefully. If you do not have a RI Sales Tax Permit when you register for the Wickford Art Festival, you must purchase a temporary permit before setting up your booth.

If an Artist lives and works in RI and the Artist already has a RI Sales Tax Permit AND a RI Exemption for the Sale of Artistic Works (hereafter called “Exemption), that Artist does not have to apply for a Temporary Retail Sales Permit or Exemption (they already have it). The Artist reports their sales directly to the RI Division of Taxation.

If an Artist lives and works inside RI and does not have a RI Sales Tax Permit or an Exemption, the Artist must purchase a Temporary Retail Sales Permit at the Festival registration. You must provide your EIN# or Social Security number as well as a check for $10.00 payable to the RI Division of Taxation at Festival registration. The Artist will now be eligible to sell art exempt from sales tax under the Wickford Art Associations blanket Certificate of Exemption. On Sunday 7/13/14, at the conclusion of the Festival, the Artist must submit to the Wickford Art Association your Sales Tax Return (pg 3, pink form) with payment for any items subject to sales tax. We will provide the form when you register. In addition, the Artist must also fill out and submit a reconciliation of the sales of artwork. Failure to submit the sales tax return or the reconciliation will prevent the Artist from being able to participate in future shows (this is the RI Law).

NOTE: Please bring two blank checks with you to the Festival: one check for the $10 permit and one check for any applicable RI state sales tax to be paid, if applicable, at the conclusion of the show.

If an Artist lives and works OUTSIDE of RI and does not have a RI Sales Tax Permit or Exemption, the Artist must purchase a Temporary Retail Sales Permit at the Festival registration. You must provide your EIN# or Social Security number as well as a check for $10.00 payable to the RI Division of Taxation. The Artist will now be eligible to sell art exempt from sales tax under the Wickford Art Associations blanket Certificate of Exemption. At the conclusion of the Festival, the Artist must submit to the Wickford Art Association a Sales Tax Return (pg 3, pink form) with payment for any items subject to sales tax. We will provide the form when you register. In addition, the Artist must also fill out and submit a reconciliation of the sales of artwork. Failure to submit the sales tax return or the reconciliation will prevent the Artist from being able to participate in future shows (this is the RI Law).

NOTE: Please bring two blank checks with you to the Festival: one check for the permit and one check for any applicable RI state sales tax to be paid, if applicable, at the conclusion of the show.

If an Artist lives and works OUTSIDE of RI and already has a RI Sales Tax Permit, at the conclusion of the Festival, that Artist will still need to file a Sales Tax Return (pg 3, pink form) with payment for any items subject to sales tax and a reconciliation of the sales and activity of the show with the Wickford Art Association. We will provide the form when you register. The Artist is not required to purchase the $10 Temporary Retail Sales Permit because they already have a State Sales Tax Permit, but is required to fill out the Sales Tax Return form. The RI Law does not allow artists living outside of RI to have an Exemption number so these artists will fall under the WAA exemption (WAA exemption number will be provided at Registration). Failure to submit the Sales Tax Return or the reconciliation will prevent the Artist from being able to participate in future shows (this is the RI Law).

NOTE: Please bring one blank check with you to the Festival for any applicable RI state sales tax to be paid, if applicable, at the conclusion of the show.

Sales Tax Permits and Exemptions must be displayed during the Festival!

Also, the State of RI requires that the Artist’s assigned exemption number or the Wickford Art Association's exemption number must be entered on the customer’s invoice. Artists using the Wickford Art Associations Exemption number will be provided that number at registration.
