When you have decided on your location for your business the Occupation Tax License application must be completed by the owner of the location.
Along with the occupational tax license application, a Massage Business application must also be completed. A background check will be completed for the owners of the business, and the fee for a new massage business is $100.00. The fee to renew the business is $25.00 annually.
If any person is employed by the massage establishment and performs work that does not require a professional license from the Georgia Secretary of State, he or she must complete a Work Permit. Please see section 22-143 in the ordinance provided below.
