August 21, 2017 will bring many visitors to Wyoming to view a big event - the first total solar eclipse visible from the continental United States in nearly four decades. Estimates have been as high as 350,000 people will descend upon Wyoming not only to view this spectacular event but take part in many of the local community activities. With this large influx of individuals, money making opportunities emerge and many locals might join in the profits. Many individuals will be selling T-shirts, souvenirs, or prepared food. Because hotels are already booked, individuals are considering renting or have already reserved their private residence or private acreage to guests visiting the area for the Eclipse. The Department of Revenue wants to advise you of the sales and lodging tax requirements and consequences of selling lodging services or tangible goods, even if only for a few days. Please refer to Wyoming Department of Revenue Website for applications and instructions.
