Event Operators

An event operator:

Requirements: The event operator must report the following information to the department within 10 days of the close of each event.

Obtaining Required Information: The operator can use the method of their choice to get the required information from each seller. The event operator can require each seller to complete Form S-240, Wisconsin Temporary Event Operator and Seller Information or the substitute form of their choice.

If a seller provides incomplete information or refuses to provide information, the event operator is required to submit as much of the required seller information as they have available.

Submitting Event Reports: Event operators should send their report within 10 days of the close of the event either electronically through the department's secure file transmission application or by U.S. mail. Do not email event reports to maintain the confidentiality of seller information.

Failure to Submit Required Reports: If an event operator fails to send the event report by the due date, a $200 penalty for the first failure and $500 for each subsequent failure may be billed to the event operator.
