Business Licenses / Occupation Tax

Your gross receipts must be filed with the City Clerk’s office so the Occupation Tax can be calculated. Applications for renewal will be sent in December. It is crucial for all businesses to make any changes on the application and to fill in the portion requesting gross receipts or the number of professionals and mail this back to the City. Invoices will then be generated and mailed. The licenses will be mailed upon receipt of payment. If you have any questions about the Business Licensing process, check the City’s website, email us at occtax@cityofsugarhill.com, or call the Business License Clerk at (770) 945-6716.
