Occupational Tax Certificate / Local "Business License"
Occupational Tax Certificate for a New Business
When applying for an Occupational Tax Certificate for the first time (similar to a Business License), please download, fill out, and submit the three forms. You will also need to present a secure and verifiable document (see Attorney General links).
Renewal of Occupational Tax Certificate
A renewal packet will be mailed out in November. If you have not received it by December, please contact our office as all licenses expire on December 31.
If you are applying for renewal and are a U.S. citizen, you will not have to fill out the Save Affidavit again. However, a completed, signed and notarized Private Employer Affidavit must still be returned.
If you have any questions, please browse the links 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 provided.
