Starting December 1st, 2013, all original and limited edition works of art sold in the State of Rhode Island will be exempt from State sales tax. The Rhode Island General Assembly, in cooperation with Governor Chafee, passed this first-in-the-nation legislation designed to establish Rhode Island as "The State of the Arts".
This workshop, presented by Randall Rosenbaum, Executive Director of the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts in cooperation with the South County Tourism Council, will provide information to artists and galleries on how to take advantage of this new tax exemption, increase economic activity and help make Rhode Island a destination for an arts-buying public.
