ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The Albany City Commission agreed to share information with the state, in an effort to make sure businesses are getting an occupational tax certificate. and paying their taxes.
Right now, Albany businesses have until March 15th to renew or apply for their 2011 Occupational Tax Certificate. The city made it easier this year allowing businesses to apply online.
Tuesday the city commission agreed to share that information with the state in exchange for the state letting them know who may be paying taxes, but not registering with the city.
"If the people-- businesses-- paid sales taxes but for whatever reason were not on our list, then they'll give us a list that lets us investigate to see why they didn't have an occupational tax certificate," said Albany's Director of Finance Kris Newton.
Businesses that don't pay for their Occupational Tax Certificate can wind up in court facing several hundred dollars in fines.
