Do I have to have a license for a yard sale?
Hall County defines a yard sale as "the sale of used household belongings by an individual at his principal residence or by a group of individuals combing such items for a group yard sale at 1 of their principal residences. Such sales may be held no more than 4 times in a calendar year, which each individual sale lasting no more than 3 consecutive days, and shall be exempt from fees. All merchandise must be the property of the person(s) holding the sale and not purchased for the purpose of resale."

If you meet the above criteria, then you will not need a license. If you operate more than 4 times per year, then it is considered a business and a business license will be required. For more information, contact the department at 770-531-6815.
