Wow, you're ignorant.

A seasonal business, as in a farmer's market, must pay, at minimum:

Income taxes on profits of the business, depending on their business type
Sales taxes on sales of taxable items
Self-employment taxes (social security and Medicare) for themselves as a business owner
Employment taxes, if they have employees

Food is sales tax exempt at any brick & mortar store unless you are eating in. Even yard salers and classifieds sellers are supposed to charge sales tax on taxable items -- though nobody does. I wonder how many people pay tax on those tires they order from out of state via the Internet? LOL Ohio law requires you to keep track of all foreign (non-Ohio) purchases and pay yer 6% by April 15th. What percentage of Ohions perjurize themselves each year? He he

My wife and I worked the Farmer's Market for a lot of years at various locations. We did not sell home grown foods as did some. Most of the vegetable vendors buy and resell rather than grow. It has gotten so expensive trying to grow your own. After fees and costs of materials and a value for you time, there is not much left for the state to collect on. The cities who try to tax end up losing vendors and then the public. Those that are large scale producers already pay their tax, but the hobbyist is barely making any money.

So how do you feel about the $82,500 grant?

I think it is another complete waste of funds.

The farmer's market is fine the way it is....why in the world would they need this much money?

If someone can explain it, fine. I am willing to listen and be open minded, but until then, animal control makes the most sense on this subject.

Grants equal money from our taxes that we pay. I say STOP all grants except for research of medical issues.

Stupid Grants are my Bitch of the Day, sorry that is another thread.

Will that amount be divided amongst the vendors at the Farmers Market? Everyone? Even baked goods? Jams and jellies and veggie dips? That ain't right

I guess it would depend on where the money was coming from. Most of these markets are under the Chamber, and have either volunteer or part time paid person to manage. It seems like a lot of money for that purpose. It also seems odd that the govt would promote on one hand and handicap on the other. For instance, the Health Dept will no allow the sale of so many products, such as egg needles, pickles, cream pies etc. If you want to sell fresh eggs it is $11 a day fee. You can't sell enough eggs to cover the fee.
Keep in mind all this is to protect the public. Just so you know, I researched this a number of years ago and learned that there are no recorded cases anywhere in this country of food poisoning from items purchased at a framer's market. The only cases on file are from large plants where there are full time USFDA inspectors on duty 24/7. It is absolutely maddening to try and make a buck in this over regulated country today and our dear liberal friends want to reelect a guy that thinks that there are too few regs and govt employees. This is just a sliver of our American economy; now multiply it by a 1000 fold and you begin to understand the huge problems we has facing us.

the timing and everything considered: This is a clear-cut case of cash for votes......Baby!

Bribery is an act of implying money or gift giving that alters the behavior of the recipient.

Forms of bribery: Expectations of when a monetary transaction is appropriate can differ from place to place...

85K would barely pay the salary, let alone the benefits of a mid-level U.S. bureaucrat. It is just a drop in the bucket to the government. It's hard to believe it would do the Logan County farmers market much good. Just window dressing at election time.

Employment tax? You don't know what you are talking about.
The tax the employer pays is the payroll tax.
