Garage Sale Fees

 

 

Before having a garage sale be sure to check whether your city or town requires a fee.

Some communities charge fees to raise extra money for the city. Others do it in order to ensure that only homeowners hold garage sales selling personal items and not conducting businesses in their backyards.

But because the process of filing the applications costs more than the fees and with no way to be sure a homeowner having a garage sale actually has a permit, some communities are eliminating the need for permits.
