Business license renewal deadline Jan. 31

Businesses in Decatur should pay their annual occupational tax by tomorrow. There will be a lengthy grace period for payments during which no penalties or interest will be charged, but businesses should renew by the deadline in order to maintain a valid license.

You can come to City Hall to renew, or you can mail in your renewal materials with the return envelope we enclosed with the invoice we sent you in November.

If you prefer to pay online, go to this site. For the year, select 2014 (except for lawyers, who should select 2013 instead). For the “business name,” enter your business's name it actually appears on your bill. Once you’ve found your record, click “renew” to pay. You'll be prompted to upload your notarized and completed immigration-related affidavits.

Paypal is our payment gateway, but you do not have to have a Paypal account to pay online. You'll want to check out as a guest, then Paypal will give you the option of selecting which type of credit card you want to use.  If you run into any difficulties online, please call us at 404-370-4100 and we'll try troubleshooting it.

Decatur's occupation taxes are levied on persons, partnerships, corporations, or other entities operating or engaging in an occupation, profession, or business within the city limits of Decatur. The City of Decatur uses profitability ratios to assign tax rates to six different classes of business ranging from $195 to $485 annually.
