Your expiring business license

Business licenses in Decatur show an expiration date of Dec. 31, 2014. However, you have until January 31 to renew your license for 2015 without penalty. That being said, if you think you will need an unexpired business license (also known as an occupation tax certificate) during the month of January in order to obtain a business loan, business checking account, or to protect yourself in the event of legal claims by customers or employees, you may want to renew early.

Renewal notices/invoices were mailed in November. You can renew in person at 509 North McDonough Street; by mail to P.O. Box 220, Decatur, GA 30031; or online through www.decaturgatax.com after clicking on Occupation Tax on the left side of the screen.

Payment of the occupation tax may or may not be the only thing we need in order to renew your license.  Non-citizens need to file SAVE affidavits annually and businesses with over 10 employees need to file E-Verify numbers annually in order to renew their license.  Affidavits can be submitted with your paper renewal or can be uploaded if you're renewing online.
