The City of Roswell is changing how it taxes businesses in our community. Previously, the City has collected business occupation tax based on number of employees. For 2018, businesses will be taxed using a method based on gross receipts. The majority of local governments in our area use a similar gross receipts method of business taxation.
Gross receipts are the total amount a business received from all sources during its annual accounting period, without subtracting any costs or expenses. Business types are categorized by NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) codes. This code is assigned a profitability index which corresponds with a specific tax rate. The tax rate applied to gross receipts will determine the tax assessment.
The new fee structure for the 2018 tax year is as follows:
The tax due will equal gross receipts, with a $50,000 exemption, multiplied by the tax rate. A $100 application fee and a $50 regulatory fee will also apply.
Professional License Classification
The tax due will be either $400 per practitioner or the gross receipts assessment with a $50,000 exemption. The practitioner/ business may choose their preferred method of calculation.
Professional practitioners include but are not limited to: lawyers, physicians, osteopaths, chiropractors, podiatrists, dentists, optometrists, psychologists, veterinarians, landscape architects, land surveyors, practitioners of physiotherapy, public accountants, embalmers, funeral directors, engineers, architects, marriage and family therapists, social workers, counselors, dealers of motor vehicles, etc.
The tax due will equal gross receipts, with a $50,000 exemption, multiplied by the tax rate. For home-based businesses, there is a cap of $100 on the total tax due.
This change will be implemented during the 2018 business occupation tax renewal process. You will be receiving notification explaining how to determine your business occupation tax amount required for 2018. All Occupation Certificate Taxes are due by December 31, 2017 for the 2018 calendar year.

A special message from the City of Roswell’s Environmental/Public Works Department:
Did you know that on November 17, 2016, Georgia’s Environmental Protection Division (GA EPD) declared a Level 2 drought? Although we have experienced a number of rainy days in recent weeks, exceptional drought conditions still persist in our region. We encourage your support in conserving our precious resource as much as possible.
Here are a few examples how you can help conserve water:
- Do you serve water to your customers as soon as they sit down? To help conserve water, we recommend you only serve water when the customer requests it.
- Under a Level 2 Drought, there are watering restrictions in place for outdoor watering. Even addresses and sites with no numbered addresses may water Wednesdays and Saturdays before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m., while those at odd-numbered addresses may water on Thursdays and Sundays before 10 a.m. and after 4 p.m.
- If you have a well that is used for irrigation, please place a sign out on the lawn or on the door to state “Well Water.” This will help the Environmental Compliance Officers and Code Enforcement Officers know that the water is from a well.
- Using water for ornamental purposes—such as fountains, reflecting pools and waterfalls—is not permitted during a Level 2 Drought.
- Using a pre-rinse spray valve that uses less water when washing your dishes will also help to conserve water.
For more information, visit the Metropolitan North Georgia Water Planning District website or contact the City of Roswell Water Utility Division at 770-641-3707.
Thank you very much for your conservation effort. It is much appreciated!
