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 certificate of occupancy, which can be found online or at City Hall in the Planning and Development Services Department. There is a one-time permit charge of $25.00 to obtain a certificate of occupancy prior to receiving a business license.
