Persons engaged in the operation of a business must obtain proper city and state/county license prior to beginning operation. A business operating outside the city limits may only be required to purchase a State/county license.
There are several differences in city and State/county licenses. A city license is issued at City Hall, while the State/county license is issued through the county in which the business is located. In Tallapoosa County, the State/county license must be purchased at the Office of the Judge of Probate at Tallapoosa County. State/county business licenses are valid for a fiscal year, i.e., October 1 through September 30. State/county licenses must be renewed by November 1 to avoid penalties and interest charges.
Many businesses are exempt from obtaining a State/county business license. A determination of exemption is made by the Business License Section of the Probate Office. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. through 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Information may be obtained by calling 256-825-4266.
