TENNESSEE TRANSIENT VENDOR LICENSE
A person/business selling or offering to sell new merchandise to the public on temporary premises and does not have a permanent, fixed location in Tennessee where the business is conducted is considered a transient vendor. A transient vendor can be both a Tennessee resident or an out of Tennessee resident. Prior to the event date, a transient vendor is required to obtain a 14-day permit from this office to conduct business in this county and/or city. If the permit expires prior to the scheduled ending date, then a new permit must be obtained for an additional 14 days. If the temporary site is located in the Urban Services District (USD) Millennium Maxwell House Hotel is in the Urban Services District, then the permit fee is $112.00. If located in the General Services District (GSD), the permit fee is $57.00. For additional information please contact (615) 862-6254 extension 77150.
Examples of businesses requiring a transient vendor license are: Convention show booth tenants where products are sold; seminars where products are sold; out of state parades or special event participants.
utopYA, LLC recommends obtaining one. If you decide not to get one, you do so at your own risk. utopYA, LLC and the Millennium Maxwell House Hotel are not liable in the unlikely occurrence that we are visited by “the man.”
