In 1987, the Anderson Fiscal Court enacted an ordinance that required anyone conducting business in Anderson County during the fiscal year to purchase a business license.
The ordinance requires the Anderson County clerk to issue the licenses and collect all associated fees.
In part, the ordinance states that all people, partnerships and corporations engaging in a trade or business within Anderson County (including the incorporated areas) are required to have a county business license. The cost is based on the number of employee’s (including owners) who will be working in Anderson County on any given day within the fiscal year.
The cost for one employee is $50; two to five employees is $100; six to 25 is $150; 26 to 100 is $200; a 101 or more is $300.
The ordinance excludes farmers and farm laborers.
This license fee is due by July 1 each year, payable to the Anderson County clerk. Failure to procure a proper license by July 1st of each year shall result in administrative penalties of the following: Aug. 1, 25 percent added to the cost of the license; Oct. 1, 50 percent; Jan. 1, 75 percent; July 1 (a year late) 100 percent.
Any person, firm or corporation violating any of the provisions of this ordinance by failure to procure a license shall be deemed guilty of a violation and upon conviction, be fined in an amount not to exceed $250 for each offense.
Each day such violation is committed or permitted to continue shall constitute a separate offense and may be punishable as such.
The license can be purchased at the Anderson County Clerk’s Office at 151 South Main St. in the courthouse.
All applicants are required to submit an affidavit with business information.
All forms are on our website at: http://andersoncountyclerk.ky.gov or can be filled out in person at our office. All violations can be reported to the enforcement officer at 839-3471 beginning on July 2.
