      4.   Category D: Businesses in which the gross receipts exceed two million dollars ($2,000,000.00) per quarter are designated as category D businesses. In addition to the category A, B or C fee, category D businesses will pay an additional two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00) per one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) per quarter.
A business licensed under this section whose quarterly gross receipts or gross sales equal more than two million dollars ($2,000,000.00) within a quarter shall compute its quarterly category D license fee as follows:
Example: Suppose your business is in category B with gross receipts of $4,000,000.00 and has 12 employees. Using the matrix found on the quarterly business license affidavit, the fee would be computed as follows:
   Category B with 12 employees =   $  240.00
   Gross receipts of $4,000,000.00 / $1,000,000.00 =   4
   4 times $250.00 =   1,000.00
   Total amount owed this quarter =   $1,240.00
