DEALER'S DEN REGISTRATION
Dealer registration does not include the registration to the convention. You must pre-register separately.
North Carolina Sales Tax:
The NC sales tax for the location of the FTO convention this year is 7%. All dealers are required to register with the state to receive a Tax ID number and then report your collection of sales tax at the end of the convention. They accept payment via debit/credit card or bank draft.
All of this can be done on-line via the state websites.

for sexual use. No other adult-themed items are allowed except for flat art/prints. All adult art must be kept in a binder/folder clearly marked for 18+. Genitalia and female nipples should be covered with post-notes to prevent minors from accidentally seeing adult art. You are responsible for preventing minors from viewing adult art. They will be wearing a badge that is clearly marked.
