Q.   I am thinking of starting a business in Jefferson County, what do I need from the County?



A.  If your business is selling a product you would need a Jefferson County Merchant’s License.  In order to obtain a Merchant’s License, the applicant must provide proof that neither the applicant nor the property owner, where applicable, owes delinquent real or personal property taxes to Jefferson County.  Section 135.010 Jefferson County Code of Ordinances.



You also need to file your business with the Jefferson County Assessor’s office.
