Business Licenses

State law requires all businesses inside the city limits to obtain a business license from the City and Rutherford County. There are some exceptions to this law, such as a business that does not gross $3,000 annually in receipts.

Obtaining a License

You may obtain your business license at the finance department, by mail, or download the application. The initial license is $15 and is payable to the city and county, thereafter payments are made to the State of Tennessee. If the applicant has a business in their home, completing an additional form is required to obtain approval from the City's Planning department.
