Sedona AZ (December 19, 2011) – The Sedona City Council adopted the following amendments to the Business License Program at their meeting on December 13, 2011. Effective dates of the business license ordinance changes are January 13, 2012.
1. Amendment to section 8-2-2(A): All businesses operating within City limits will be required to obtain and maintain a current business license. For 2011, the Ordinance only required businesses with a TPT liability to apply and maintain a current business license. For 2012, all businesses operating within the City must apply for and maintain a current business license.
2. Amendment to section 8-2-2(D): Creation of a delinquent fee for businesses that fail to obtain a business license. For 2011, there was no delinquency fee for businesses that failed to obtain a business license. For 2012, a penalty of $5.00 per month shall be assessed on all delinquent and/or underpaid licenses. To avoid penalties, the 2012 business license application and full payment must be received on or before February 29, 2012.
3. Amendment to section 8-2-3(B): Creation of a temporary Special Event Business License at a cost of $7 per event per participant. For 2011, there were no Special Event Business Licenses. Based on feedback from the business community, a condensed business license form will be available for special events. The special event business license will be valid for seven consecutive days after the date of issuance.
