Proposed Change to Business License Program Fails in AZ

No change to business license law in Prescott, AZ as home and apartment rental owners not exempt from having to obtain a license.

Prescott city staff members had recommended a change to the business license program, which went into effect on Jan. 1, to exempt owners of long-term residential rentals from the requirement to get a $35 annual business license.

City Budget and Tax Manager Lars Johnson explained at the City Council’s Feb. 28 meeting that the residential-rental requirement had generated many questions and complaints from the rental owners.

It's rare that any field of business you're in will not require some type of license. Exemptions are scarce. LicenseSuite can determine which exact licenses your business needs. We can also help with filing for those licenses you're not exempt from.
