Most counties and cities require a Business Professional and Occupational License (BPOL), for operation. All business owners, including home-based businesses, are subjected to the BPOL tax and must file a return annually. Additionally, most counties and cities also require new businesses to be registered within a specific time frame. Late filings incur penalties, with due dates for BPOL filing varying depending on the county or city where your business operates.

To complete the filing, you will need the following information:

  • IRS taxpayer ID (FEIN)
  • NAICS Code
  • Owner name
  • Trade name
  • Business name, address, contact information
  • Description of business
  • Estimated first year gross receipts/purchases
  • Begin date

*Note: Requirements may vary across different counties and cities.
