Business License Office

Every person engaged or intending to engage in any calling, business, occupation or profession within the city limits of the City of Greer is required to pay an annual license tax and obtain a business license. License taxes are based upon the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code of the business and the gross income earned within the city limits of the City of Greer.

Dates & Penalty

The required fee shall be paid annually on or before April 30. The Business License Inspector shall levy and collect a late penalty for each month and portion thereof after the due date until the license has been paid.
