A.   Payment Dates: All license fees shall be due and payable as follows, except as may be otherwise provided:
      1.   Annual fees shall be payable before each calendar year in advance. The annual license shall date from January 1 of each year and shall expire on December 31 of each year. (1989 Code § 9-114)
      2.   Annual fees shall be due on January 1 of each calendar year and shall become delinquent if not paid by the date provided in subsection B of this section. (1989 Code § 9-114; amd. Res. 2008-26, 12-10-2008)
      3.   One-half (1/2) of annual fee shall be payable for all licenses issued by the city pursuant to application made after July 1 of each year and licenses issued after July 1 shall expire on January 1 of the following year. Payment shall be due upon the date of application approval. (1989 Code § 9-114)
   B.   Late Penalties For Business Licenses: Any business license fee due on January 1 that is paid later than February 15 of any license year shall be considered to be late, and a late penalty of fifty percent (50%) of the amount of the fee shall be added to the original amount due. If the fee is still not paid by April 1 of each year, the business shall be considered to be operating without a business license, subject to criminal prosecution for every day of operation after April 1. If a license is granted thereafter, the fee shall be doubled. (Res. 2008-26, 12-10-2008)
   C.   Fee Not To Constitute Undue Burden On Interstate Commerce: None of the requirements for a license or permit provided for by this chapter shall be applied so as to occasion an undue burden on interstate commerce. In any case where a fee is levied on a licensee, or permittee or applicant for a license or permit, and the levy is alleged to place an undue burden upon interstate commerce, such person may make application for hearing pursuant to the provisions set forth in subsection 3-1A-9B of this chapter, and may utilize all other applicable remedies set forth herein. (1989 Code § 9-125; amd. 2007 Code)
