Occupational Tax Stamp - Federal Tax on Retail Dealers

Corporations PartnershipsLimited Liability Companies Alcohol Licensing & Compliance Joint Ventures Franchise Formation  ● LitigationEmployment LawDispute Resolution

The law defines a retail dealer as a person who sells to any person other than a dealer. This includes sales for on-premises consumption (e.g. bars, restaurants, clubs, sports arenas, etc.). All retail dealers (except in the case of "limited" dealers) are required to pay special  and obtain a special tax stamp before commencing business, and on or before July 1 and thereafter, if they continue in business.

     A retail dealer who handles distilled spirits, wine or beer or any combination of distilled spirits, wine or beer and malt beverages must pay special tax at the rate of $250 a year. When the tax is paid in full, the dealer will be issued a special tax stamp for the class of business for which the tax is paid. The special tax stamp is issued to cover only one place of business. If retail dealers conduct business at more than one location, they must pay special tax and obtain a special tax stamp for each location. Persons engaged in the sales of distilled spirits, wine or beer, who willingly fail to pay the tax, render themselves liable to a fine of not more than $5000, imprisonment for not more than 2 years, or both.
