The City of Glasgow License Fee Division collects Occupational License Fees from all entities with business activity in the city limits of Glasgow. These license fees include: Minimum License Fees, Net Profit License Fees, and Local Payroll Tax
The License Fee Division is responsible for the collection of the Insurance Premium Tax. Depending on the type of policy, the tax varies from 2 - 5% of the Premium Amount. This tax is paid by the insurance companies and is imposed on the policyholder's bill.
The License Fee Division is also responsible for collection of the Transient Room Tax. This is a 3% tax imposed on Gross Rental of all motels, bed & breakfasts, cabins, etc. located in Barren County (excluding the city limits of Cave City and Park City). The room tax is due on a monthly basis. These funds are used exclusively for the promotion of tourism in Barren County.
SPECIAL NOTE TO CONTRACTORS:
All subcontractors must have an Occupational License. One cannot work "under" another's license unless the 1.5% Occupational tax is being withheld from that subcontractor's earnings. Penalties will be imposed on those contractors found to be in violation of Occupational License Code. Please see "Subcontractor Listing" sheet to be completed by General Contractors.
