Business Tax License


On August 1, 2006, by a vote of 5-0, the Marion County Board of County Commissioners repealed the Occupational License Ordinance effective October 1, 2006.  There is no longer a requirement for a Marion County Occupational License after September 30, 2006.

This change only affects Occupational Licenses issued by Marion County.  It does not change any State regulated professional requirements, Building Department licensing requirements or Occupational License requirements for cities located in Marion County.
