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.
