Clinton County Auditor | Clinton County, Ohio

There are only two types of vendor’s licenses: County and Transient. A County Vendor’s License is required for selling taxable goods or services at a fixed location of business. A Transient Vendor’s License is for the sale of goods at various shows and markets throughout the state of Ohio.

Regular vendor’s licenses are obtained at the Auditor’s office. A regular vendor’s license is issued to vendors with a fixed place of business and is only good for one location. The application fee is $25.

Vendor’s licenses are only transferable if you change the physical location of your business within the same county. If you move your business to another county, change your name, incorporate or add a partner, a new vendor’s license is required. If you change your trade name or d.b.a. name, a new license is not required.

A vendor’s license can be cancelled by completing the appropriate information on a final Ohio sales tax return indicating the last day of business.

Clinton County sales tax rate is 7.25%

Transient Vendor's Licenses are also $25 and are issued by the State of Ohio Department of Taxation. They are available only online or by calling 888-405-4089.
