Occupation License Forms
The City of Winnfield requests that all new businesses get an annual occupational license. Our yearly fee rate is $50.00 for any business (new or renewal) from the month of January to December. If you open a business mid-year, the fee is $25.00 for the month of July to December. After operating for 30 days, you will be required to submit your total sales from the time opened, divided by the number of days in operation to equal the total fee owed. Also, I have enclosed a chart that tells a range of fees owed based on sales. I hope that I provided the information that is needed. If any further assistance is needed, please contact Jessica at (318) 628-3939.
