Warning: Information you find on this page may be outdated or incorrect.

Greenville City Council recently passed an ordinance extending the deferral of late payment penalties for Local Accommodations Fees and Local Hospitality Taxes until June 22 for businesses that file their required monthly reports by the normal deadlines.

This covers sales that occurred in February, March, April, and May 2020 (reports filed March, April, May, June). Please remember to file even if your sales for the reporting month was $0. Payments not made by June 22 will begin to accrue penalties on June 23. Businesses that have not filed regular Accommodations or Hospitality Tax reports are still subject to penalties.

The Greenville City Council also extended the deadline for payment of new business license fees and business license renewal fees without penalty until June 22. Businesses are still required to file their renewal applications and new businesses must still file for a business license before opening. Renewal fees and new business license fees not paid on June 22 will begin to accrue penalties on June 23.

The Greenville Chamber said in a statement that it appreciates the city’s recent actions for its flexibility during the COVID outbreak even through it is impacting municipal revenue.
