The City of Duluth welcomes your business to our community and appreciates the opportunity to serve you!

Every business in the City limits must apply for an Occupational Tax Certificate and renew it annually. View the Licensing & Business Regulations Information Packet.

                                                                        ATTENTION BUSINESS OWNERS!

Due to a software conversion for our Occupational Tax Certificates, the City of Duluth will not accept new business license applications or renewals from November 20 - November 30, 2020.

Existing business owners who have not renewed for 2020 no longer hold a valid license and must reapply after December 1.

The new system should be available during the first week of December. Our goal is to provide a more user friendly, online experience for new and existing business owners. We ask for your patience as we update our computer software.

Thank you for choosing the City of Duluth of your business location.

Is my location inside of City limits?
Prior to submitting an application, please verify that the physical address of your business is within Duluth city limits. Two different zip codes 30096 and 30097 have Duluth mailing addresses, however, they may not necessarily be located inside the City. Post office boxes can be used for mailing addresses but not business location. For verification, please review the City of Duluth street listing provided on the City website, or contact the Planning Department at 770.476.1790 to have your location confirmed.

You only need one Occupational Tax Certificate to conduct business. If you are within city limits, you do not need to get a certificate from Gwinnett County.
