Commissioner of the Revenue agents interview all applicants applying for a business license. Tax rates are set by City Council, vary by industry type, and are classified accordingly.
When a new business applies for a license with the commissioner's office, an application is completed for any other applicable tangible property or trustee taxes. All organizations must register with the commissioner's office, however, some manufacturing, farms, and non-profit entities may qualify as tax exempt.
ALL BUSINESS LICENSE APPLICATIONS MUST BE APPROVED BY ZONING.
If any information on the original application changes or the business fails or closes, the commissioner's office must be notified.
Some organizations that host less than three events per year may be exempt from certain taxes. Events of this kind are still required to register with the commissioner's office and are referred to as community events
