Pay for a business license.
*A non-profit organization must submit a commercial or home-based business license application, depending on business location. A 501(c)(3) document must be provided to the City in order to be considered for license fee waiver.
If your business name is anything other than your surname, it is required to be registered with the state. Should you accidentally "infringe" upon another business name you may face legal action.
Register your business
The business license is valid for one year and is billed on the first of the month from the month the application was received. It must be renewed annually.
The actual process to obtain the business license takes only a few days for home occupations. Commercial businesses can take as long as four weeks to process and approve. Upon approval, the business license will be mailed to the mailing address listed on the application.
Yes. The license fee is waived for non-profit businesses. However, proof of non-profit status is required (for example: 501(3)(c)).
Please note: for commercial non-profit businesses, employee and review fees are not waived.
If you own more than one business, a separate business license is required for each type of business and for each location.
