    1. Business License Application
      As set forth in the Lyons Town Code, an annual business license is required for all businesses operating in the Town of Lyons. Business licenses expire on December 31 of each year.

      It is the business owner’s responsibility to remember that business licenses must be renewed each January. Failure to renew may result in the revocation of the license as indicated in Section 2-1-10 of the Lyons Town Code.

      Business licenses of any type, including both renewing and new businesses, are $50. *Business license fee has been reduced to $25 for 2021 only.
      Renewing business license applications and payments must be submitted on or before Wednesday, Jan. 30. All renewals submitted after 4:30 p.m. on January 30 will be issued a penalty of ten percent (10%) of the amount of the license fee, and an additional five percent (5%) of the original fee will be added on the last day of each calendar month (LMC § 6-1-100).

      Payment information is listed at the end of the application.
