Business tax certificates expire on December 31 (in the year of issuance) and must be renewed annually by March 1 (of the year immediately following the year of issuance) to avoid penalties and interest. Renewal forms are sent automatically to existing businesses each year. You can also download a blank copy of the renewal form and view instructions for renewal.
Business tax certificate renewals can be paid for in-person or by mail. Please visit Revenue Payment Methods for details.
For more information on the Business Tax Certificate application or renewal process, please contact a City of Savannah Business Tax Specialist at (912) 651-6445.
