Business Licensing Essentials: How to Handle Appeals and Delinquents

Every month in 2022, the Municipal Association’s Local Revenue Services is hosting “Business Licensing Essentials,” a series of virtual training sessions on the processes needed to administer business licenses correctly, efficiently and in a way that makes life easier for those doing business inside a city or town. The session on processing delinquencies and appeals will take place Wednesday, May 11, 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Act 176, which standardized business licensing practices across the state, established a standard business license tax due date. After April 30, local governments may charge the penalty rates included in their business license ordinance to businesses operating without a license. The new law also outlines a standard appeals process which includes deadlines for appeals and responses.
