  1. City Licensing

  2.  If you conduct any business within the city limits of Jackson (including home occupations), you are required to get a business or contractor license, unless specifically exempted by state statute.  The annual filing deadline for the license year is June 30.  The municipal code that governs business activity within the City of Jackson can be found online in Section 37.  For business activities that do not fall under one of the specific license types, a merchant’s license is required.  

    State exemptions exist for the following occupations: profession or calling of minister of the gospel, duly accredited Christian Science practitioner, teacher, professor in a college, priest, lawyer, certified public accountant, dentist, chiropractor, optometrist, chiropodist, physician, or surgeon.  The professions of insurance agent or broker, veterinarian, architect, professional engineer, land surveyor, auctioneer, and real estate broker or salesman must obtain a license if an office is maintained within Jackson city limits.
