Smithfield Annual Business Registration Renewal

Dear Smithfield Business Owner,

The Town of Smithfield values your presence as a member of our business community. We also strive to achieve clarity and transparency in our relationship with residents and business proprietors alike by assisting you in understanding and maintaining compliance with local statute.

Town Ordinance Chapter 236 Article III requires the owner of each business situated in the Town of Smithfield to renew their Business Registration Certificate with the Tax Collector’s Office on an annual basis. This requirement helps the Town maintain up to date records on businesses operating locally in accordance with state law, and also assists us in providing a level playing field for business proprietors with regards to licensing and taxation. You can read the ordinance at the following web address: http://www.ecode360.com/8256267

Please follow these steps in order to renew your Business Registration Certificate for this year:

1) MAKE SURE YOUR TAX PAYMENTS ARE CURRENT.
The tangible tax account for your business must be up to date in order for the application to be approved. The $5.00 registration fee was already included on your tangible tax bill and may be paid with your first or second quarterly payment.

2) COMPLETE AND SUBMIT THE RENEWAL FORM BELOW BY DECEMBER 31ST
Please complete all required fields before submitting. Businesses not registered by December 31st may incur a penalty of $25 per month. If you provide an email address, it may be used for correspondence from the Town related to your business account. Your email address will not be shared with any outside firm and is not considered public information. Paper forms are also available in the Tax Collector’s Office and at the following link: Link to the .pdf form

3) IF YOUR BUSINESS HAS SOLD OR RELOCATED OUTSIDE SMITHFIELD, PLEASE NOTIFY THE ASSESSOR’S OFFICE

As always, your cooperation is appreciated.
