All deductions from gross receipts for each single gathering or occasion
shall be documented with receipts or other records indicating the amount,
a description of the purchased item or service or other reason for the deduction,
and the recipient. The distribution of net proceeds shall be itemized as
to payee, purpose, amount and date of payment.
(b) Gross receipts from the operation of raffles or poker runs shall be segregated

receipts, expenses and net proceeds from the raffle, and the distribution of
net proceeds itemized as required in this Section.
