Occupational Tax


The City of Duluth welcomes your business to our community. Every business in the City must apply for an Occupational Tax Certificate and renew it annually.

The annual license expires on January 30th of each year.  There is a grace period until April 30th. PENALTIES WILL BE ADDED ON MAY 1ST. 

Renewal letters for 2019 Occupational Tax Certificates were mailed by December 31, 2018.  For your convenience, fillable forms are available online for the 2019 renewal season. To help you navigate the forms, use your mouse to hover over a field for tips on what type of information to fill in. Once complete, the forms need to be printed, signed and notarized prior to submission by mail or in person. Directions to City Hall are here
