Occupational Tax

The City of Duluth welcomes your business to our community. Every business in the City is required to apply for an Occupational Tax Certificate (OTC) and renew it annually in order to operate in the city limits.

We have been experiencing issues with our recent
 software conversion and are adjusting our processes to overcome the challenges. Our goal is to provide an efficient application and renewal process for new and existing business owners to meet their individual needs.  Thank you for your patience during this transition. 

Please refer to the New Business Application Tab or the Occupational Tax Renewal Tab on the left menu bar for further instructions.
