South Carolina County Starts Talking Licensing

Orangeburg County, SC wants to bring in additional revenue by requiring businesses to get licenses.

“Right now there is nothing in the county,” Planning Director Richard Hall said. “If a business is in the city and they do work in the county, the city collects all that money because we don’t have a business license.”

The county is considering a plan with a varying rate, depending on the type of business. On average, businesses would pay $1 per $1,000 in revenue for companies making less than $1 million.
