Municipal Business License Information

Act 2006-586 directs all state boards and agencies that regulate licensing of businesses or occupations under their jurisdiction to notify the Alabama Department of Revenue in writing of their regulatory requirements. It also requires the Department to compose a list of all such boards and agencies, and to distribute the list to all municipal license officers.

Lists of regulatory boards and agencies have been prepared alphabetically by Board/Agency Name. Beginning with the 2008 license year, any business entity that is in an occupation shown on the list should present a permit or certificate from the regulatory board or agency prior to being issued a municipal business license.
