Business or Privilege Licenses

As of July 1, 2015, local governments will no longer have the authority to levy a privilege license tax per S.L. 2014-3/House Bill 1050 

Therefore, the Town of Leland does not require a new or existing business to obtain or renew a privilege license.

However, other permits are required for opening a new business, changing the business owners, changing the occupancy of an existing business, sale of alcohol for on and off premise consumption.
