Business owners must renew yearly licenses by March 31

December 30, 2015

Businesses in the City of Johns Creek have until March 31, 2016, to renew their business tax certificates by submitting a business tax return with full payment of all fees and taxes.

Business owners can come to City Hall at 12000 Findley Rd., Suite 400, to file tax certificates, more commonly known as business licenses, but the City also will mail renewal applications in early January.

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.

As part of the City's "Choose to Use Johns Creek" campaign, the Revenue Division's online business directory can include website information. When business owners submit their tax certificate application, they can also include their business website address, which will help citizens find and learn more about our local businesses.
