Frequently Asked Questions

What is the first step to obtain a business license?

The first step is determining the physical location of the business. If the business is located inside the Tuscaloosa City limits or its Police Jurisdiction, the business location must be approved through a code compliance. Once this code compliance approval has been completed, a business license will be issued based on the estimated gross receipts of the business for the calendar year.
