Occupational License Renewal

The Revenue Division of the City of Baton Rouge Finance Department has initiated a program to allow taxpayers that have operated a business for at least one year to file occupational license renewals and make payments online. Online renewals for occupational license taxes will be accepted from January 1st to October 31st for each year. All businesses qualified for this option will be assigned a Personal Identification Number (PIN) that is exclusive to the business on their renewal application.

Taxpayers who use the program will authorize the City-Parish to perform an electronic funds transfer (EFT), via an Automated Clearing House (ACH) debit transaction, which will be processed simultaneously with the transmission of the renewal form. If for any reason the EFT transaction is rejected, such as insufficient funds in the account or inaccurate banking information, the renewal could be considered delinquent if this issue is not resolved by the tax due date. All monetary amounts that are entered to the online system will be rounded to the nearest dollar.

Tax payment due dates will not change when filing and paying through this program. Any renewals filed after the due date (February 28) will be assessed interest and penalty, as applicable.
