The City of Lawrenceburg has adopted the State of Tennessee Business Act (TCA Title 67 Taxes and Licenses). This requires anyone operating a business within the City of Lawrenceburg with an annual gross income of more that $3,000 (contractors $50,000) to obtain a City Business License. Applications can be picked up at the front counter of City Hall. Upon receipt of your completed application, we will collect a fee of $15 and issue you a business license. Business licenses are renewed annually, with the percentage of your gross receipts (privilege tax) to be paid along with the renewal. Renewal dates and percentage rates are determined by the type of business you are conducting.
