Veteran Peddler’s Licenses

Honorably discharged members of the United States Armed Forces and their surviving spouses are eligible to apply for a Veterans Peddler's License in the Broome County Clerk’s Office. This license provides veterans with the right to hawk, peddle, vend, and sell goods, wares, or merchandise, or solicit trade upon the streets and highways within Broome County.

Veterans Peddler’s Licenses are issued free of charge and are valid as long as you maintain residency within Broome County. If the certificate is lost or destroyed, we will issue a duplicate license by repeating the process described below. The Clerk should be informed that the document is a replacement, so that it may be noted on the certificate. Only one certificate may be active at once.

To get a license, you must visit the Broome County Clerk’s Office (60 Hawley St, 3rd Floor, Binghamton, NY 13901) in person between 9 am – 3:30 pm and present the following documents: 

  • Valid driver's license or government-issued photo ID;
  • Proof of Residency (6 months minimum); and
    • A driver’s license, utility bill or mortgage payment receipt is sufficient.
  • Your DD-214 military discharge papers – must be an original or certified copy.

After we review your documentation and verify your eligibility, we will take your picture and issue your Peddler’s License.  The process takes 30-45 minutes.

Please note that you after you receive your Peddler's License, you should contact the City, Town or Village Clerk where you plan to operate your business to see if they have any additional local requirements.   Their contact info is below:
