Re:   Occupational Licensing and Net Profit Requirements

All businesses shall pay an annual occupational license fee to the city and the county for the privilege of engaging in such activities within the City of Danville and the County of Boyle.  When conducting business within the city limits of Danville, an occupational license is required.  Each following year you will be required to file a form NP (net profit return) and pay a fee based on 1.25% (after October 1, 2015) of the net profit earned from sales within the City of Danville and .75% of the net profit earned within the County of Boyle.   In addition, you are required to withhold a gross wage tax of 1.50% (after October 1, 2015) from each employee who earns a wage while working within the city and .75% within the county.  This withholding is to be reported on the Employers Quarterly Withholding Return Form and remitted quarterly by the end of the month following the end of the quarter.

You can view the County of Boyle Ordinance No.220.4 at boyleky.com and the City of Danville Ordinance No.1687 at danvilleky.org.   If you have any questions, call Susanna Ryan or Mary Sleet at (859) 238-1115.
