Municipal and County Taxes
Typically, municipalities do not charge business taxes directly. Revenues for the Municipality come from property taxes, which a business owner may be responsible for paying based on the property you own or lease within the municipality.
There may be fees associated with owning a business within a municipality, including fire protection or Mercantile Licenses. When planning, you should do your due diligence to identify local ordinances that may apply to your business. Contact your Municipal Clerk for additional information.
