Johns Creek Business Occupation Tax Certificates due March 31, now renewable online

January 04, 2017

Business LicenseBusinesses in the City of Johns Creek have until March 31, 2017, to renew their business tax certificates and starting this year, they are now able to renew online.
 
Businesses can renew their business tax certificates by submitting a business tax return with full payment of all fees and taxes. Online renewals can be completed through the online portal via the City’s website. Instructions to renew online are available here.
 
The City has mailed renewal applications the last week of December. Failure to receive a renewal application does not relieve a business of responsibility to pay its business tax by the deadline. Late payments are subject to a 10 percent penalty and interest of 1.5 percent a month. Business tax certificates, commonly called business licenses, will be considered on time if they are postmarked by March 31.
 
Certificates are valid for a calendar year, Jan. 1 to Dec. 31.
 
When business owners submit their tax certificate application, they can also include their business website address, which will then be included in the City’s online business directory and therefore help citizens find and learn more about our local businesses.
