All regular business license fees are payable yearly by July 1. Liquor, gaming and brothel fees may be paid quarterly on or before July 1, October 1, January 1, and April 1 of each year, at the option of the business. During the month of June each year, the business license department will notify all businesses by mail of the date their business license fee shall be due and the amount of the fee due for the following year. This is the only notification of when the fees are due. It is the businesses’ responsibility to make all appropriate payments on time. There is a grace period of fifteen (15) days and a fifteen percent (15%) penalty will be applied to delinquent fees after the 15th of the month upon which they are due.

Your fee can be prorated, depending on when you apply for your license. We can prorate the year, but not the quarter.
