Business Taxes
Overview of Business Taxes
State law requires that all businesses (with the exception of certain professions, manufacturers, and disabled persons) inside the City of Manchester have both city and county business licenses.

A simple form is completed for each business and a fee for the issue of the initial business license is levied.

Business taxes, unlike property taxes, are assessed against the gross receipts during a certain time period. Each year, gross receipts reporting forms are sent to all licensed businesses in a specific class. The business owner must file gross receipts figures, take certain deductions allowed, and figure the tax owed.

Business Tax License Application

Payment can be made by cash, personal check or money order. You can conduct business tax matters at the Tax Collections Office, which is open from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, and is located at the Department offices.


Business tax information supplied to the City is confidential in accordance with state law. The City cannot give this information to anyone other than the business owner or his/her authorized agent unless the records are under subpoena by a court.
