City ordinance prohibits solicitation or distribution of handbills without first obtaining a written permit. Political and religious handbills do not require a permit. Knocking on the door and asking for a vote for a candidate or talking about your religion is not soliciting.

As of August 2016, the City is temporarily suspending the requirement of individuals soliciting funds or distributing any commercial handbills to obtain a permit issued by the City of Frisco. However, an individual is still required to have the following:
A copy of the valid state sales tax certificate, if applicable.
A valid driver’s license or other valid, official photo identification.
The Solicitation Permit Application (Individual) and Solicitation Permit Application (Supervisor) form must be submitted in person, along with a non-refundable fee. A valid driver’s license or official photo ID is required and a criminal background check will be performed. A copy of the handbill or flyer must also be submitted and it must have the company name, address and phone number printed on it. The cost for a solicitation permit is $50 per person.
Applications are only accepted between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
