Occupational Tax Certificate
If applying for an Occupational Tax Certificate for the first time (similar to a Business License), please download, fill out, and submit the three forms below. You will also need to present a secure and verifiable document (see Attorney General links below).
If you are applying for renewal and are a U.S. citizen, you will not have to fill out the SAVE affidavit again.
If you have any questions, please click the links below to review the Greene County Code of Ordinances chapter on Business Licenses. For your convenience, a link to the State of Georgia's Licensing page is also below.
