I have a Madison County Business License, Now what?
By requesting and receiving a Madison County Government Business License to operate or conduct business in Madison County (Outside the City Limits) you have now activated a process that requires additional tax information to be submitted to the Madison County Finance Office on an annual basis.

Madison County currently has a 1% net profit tax, which is due annually and if you have employees you are also required by law to file your payroll information on a quarterly basis and pay to the County a 1% Occupational Tax. Your new Business License has caused the Finance Office to open a “TAX RECORD” in your business name which requires you to file paperwork with the finance office each year, regardless of whether you make a profit from your business or not.

 

CONTACT THE MADISON COUNTY  FINANCE DEPARTMENT TO LEARN WHAT RESPONSIBILITIES YOU NOW HAVE AS A BUSINESS LICENSE RECIPIENT IN MADISON COUNTY.

 

FAILURE TO SUBMIT THE REQUIRED FORMS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE COUNTY’S TAX LAWS MAY RESULT IN FINES AND PEANLTIES.
