City of Marion

Business License

The City of Marion charges a $25 fee annually for a business license for businesses located in the City Limits or for firms or contractors doing work in the City. A business license is required for each separate business.

For more information or to obtain a business license, please contact City Tax Collector Brett Moore.

Prior to opening a new business, owners must apply for a zoning compliance permit, which can be found online or at City Hall in the Planning and Development Services Department. The permit is free of charge but must be approved by the Zoning Administrator prior to receiving a business license.
