What is the duration of a Business License / Tax Certificate?
All Business License / Tax Certificates are issued for a 12-month period and expire one year from the date of application. Renewal notices are mailed out approximately 30 days prior to the expiration of a Business License / Tax Certificate, and must be paid on or before the due date of each year, or penalties in the amount of 20% per month up to 100% will accrue.

Failure to receive a renewal notice does not relieve licensee’ of delinquency penalties — it is the responsibility of the business owner to maintain a current business license / tax certificate.

Business License / Tax Certificates are not transferable, and as such, change of ownership or physical address requires a new application and the corresponding tax and/or fee.
