I am renewing my City of Atlanta business license.  Previous years I stated Class 7 which is Real Estate Agents, the next highest charge.  What do you do who have Atlanta business licenses?  There is no class for appraisers.

When I appraised in the City of Atlanta, it never crossed my mind to have a business license.  My office was outside of the city.

Jodi good idea, however there is no inspector classification - ice cream maker and ice maker.

Then maybe folks like appraisers and inspectors don't bother with a business license in the City of Atlanta.

Look under H for Home Appraiser or Home Inspector or Insurance Adjuster or something.  Doesn't really matter what you choose, so long as you pay the money.  And take this from my personal experience.... When you close up shop, you need to cancel that license.... Don't just let it expire and don't pay.  You will have a warrant filed for you and get arrested.

Do you have a commercial business front office open to the public? 
Why do you need it?

When I first incorporated I was unaware of the business license requirement.  Cost me $500 in penalty.  No, I do not have an office front.  My second bedroom is my office and the breakfast room is file storage.  Thank Jodi, I will remember to cancel the license when I stop working.

Gunnel.... When you stop working, there may be no need to cancel the license.[biggrin]

I don't think that is how it works.
Does anyone else pay for a city license without a store front? 
I pay a state registration for an EIN#, but that is it.

I know in the war-town I had to have a license for a different business years ago and had no store-front.  But it doesn't matter where your business license is.  You can still work in the City of Atlanta even if you have a business license in Hahira.

I just know you don't want to fugg around with the business license stuff.  When I was 18 I started a small business and by the time I was done with college and starting med-school I just didn't renew it.  I didn't know it but I had a warrant out for me as I was applying for med-school.  Nothing looks as good to a med-school admissions department as a warrant.

Fortunately my mama was able to work with the sherriffs dept before I was arrested to get matters settled so that nothing came up with my med-school admissions stuff.

I don't know... 
That doesn't really make any sense at all.  A fine....OK...  But why would a warrant be issued over a city business license that lapse?  That would be even more of a reason not to get one.

Yeah... That seemed to be a bit harsh to me as well.

I think the warrant was in response to a lack of response from me.

The business was setup at my grandfathers address.... He was moved to the Georgia War Veterans Home in Milledgeville and wasn't getting all of his mail.

So, I really don't know how long I was on the lam before it was found out that I had a warrant.

My mother was informed when the popo came to serve the warrant and only the tenant was there.

You know how the popo is.  Surprised they didn't raid the place with flash granades.

BTW... for all of you real estate investors out there... Insurance doesn't pay when your tenants don't behave and the popo raids your rental house with flash grenades.

Yup.  That's why you up the rent $25 and make renters insurance mandatory.  But I'm still not sure that will cover police invasion.
