Party Time Is Over: Businesses In IN Can No Longer Avoid Paying Annual Licesning Fee

Business licenses to now be required in Hobart, IN.

City Council members noted during a recent ordinance committee meeting that Hobart is one of just a few cities or towns in Northwest Indiana that doesn't require and charge businesses for a license.

"Many calls we get ask about business licenses. It's been a lost opportunity because they expect it," said the city's economic development director, Denarie Kane.

It makes sense for the city to start requiring business licenses; it's additional revenue for the city and aspiring small business owners assume they need one anyway. Too bad for those existing small business owners who were enjoying the freedom.
