About the Program:

Do you sell your artistic work online or in person via direct sales, by consignment or through a marketplace? Illinois law may require you to collect and remit tax on your sales. Learn more about the Illinois retailers’ occupation and use tax, commonly known as “sales” tax, and how to navigate it when you sell your work.

Join Lawyers for the Creative Arts and attorney Mary Kay McCalla Martire from McDermott Will & Emery LLP as we demystify sales tax rules and reporting processes in Illinois. We’ll cover when you’re required to collect sales tax, how to register with the state of Illinois, and how to report and pay tax on your sales to the Illinois Department of Revenue. The seminar will focus on actionable guidance that you can use in your artistic business and will include a question and answer session.
