Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley signed House Bill 1386 (HB1386) on April 24, 2008 that would exempt exempt dealers attending a show sponsored by a non-profit organization from having to be licensed and pay sales tax in Maryland. See my post on April 16 for more about the law.
In addition to being exempt from the American Numismatic Association’s World’s Fair of Money™ that will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center at the end of July, but it also covers the Maryland State Numismatic Association 36th Annual Convention and Coin Show that will be held at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timmonium the weekend prior, July 26-28.
Tables are available for those who want to participate in the MSNA show. For more about the show and contact information, click here. MSNA is a § 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization which should qualify dealers to be exempt from sales taxes.
