SEC. 75-85-7. Application for license.
(1) A transient vendor who desires to transact business in a county or municipality in this state shall apply for and obtain a license in each county and in each municipality in which the vendor desires to transact business. A license issued by a county authorizes a transient vendor to transact business outside of the municipalities in the county, and a license issued by a municipality authorizes a transient vendor to transact business within the municipality. The license application shall be filed with the county tax collector or municipal tax collector, as the case may be, and must include:
(a) The name and permanent address of the transient vendor making the application;
(b) A statement describing the kind of business to be conducted, the length of time for which the applicant desires to transact the business, and the proposed location of the business;
(c) The name and permanent address of the applicant's registered agent or office; and
(d) Proof that the applicant has acquired all other required city, county and state permits and licenses. Such proof shall include a Mississippi sales tax number and, if the transient vendor desires to transact business in a municipality, such number shall include such municipality's sales tax diversion code.
(2) If the applicant is an association or a corporation, the applicant must also include the names and addresses of the members of the association or the officers of the corporation. If the applicant is a corporation, the application must state the date of incorporation and the state in which it was incorporated. If the applicant is a corporation organized under the laws of another state, the applicant must state the date on which the corporation qualified to transact business as a foreign corporation in this state.
