Food & Merchant HB Sellers Permit Information:

 

The State of California requires all vendors selling a tangible product to provide the Taste with their Seller's Permit. If their Seller's Permit (license) shows an HB address, nothing further is required. If their Seller's Permit does not show an HB address, the vendor will need to add Huntington Beach as a sub-location to their existing Seller's Permit. This can be done online: www.cdtfa.ca.gov There is no fee. Please send a copy of the finalized sub-location document to kingrim1@hotmail.com
