Newnan business license renewals due April 1

by Staff Reports

The city of Newnan is reminding businesses operating in the city that the renewal of their Occupational Tax Certificates (business licenses) are due Monday, April 1.

The penalty for late renewals starts at 11.5 percent and goes up by 1.5 percent per month until paid in full.

Renewal packets were mailed to the businesses in January 2013 to the address on file with the city. A copy of the 2012 tax return is required in most cases to substantiate gross receipts and complete the renewal.

If you have started a new business in the city and have not obtained the required Occupational Tax Certificate, you may visit City Hall on LaGrange Street in downtown Newnan or go to the city website, www.newnanga.gov , to obtain the necessary paperwork.

If you have closed your business, you will need to submit the appropriate form also; otherwise you will continue to receive tax bills and renewal forms. The Closed Business form can be found on the city’s website.

If you have questions or need other information, city officials may be reached at 678-673-5478. Penalties for late renewals will not be waived.
