For any person who engages in any business within the City without first obtaining a BTR, the penalty is up to 25% of the business tax due, in addition to any other penalty provided by law or ordinance. Persons who do not pay the required taxes within 150 days after initial notice of the tax being due are subject to a penalty equal to the annual amount of the Business Tax or $250.00, whichever is less, in addition to possible civil action and penalties. Penalties cannot be waived as the City Code does not provide for administrative relief by staff, administrators or elected officials.
