The answer is, it depends. Business applications for licenses for things such as cigarettes, coin operated machines, and anything related to alcohol (including Operator Licenses) are generally due in mid to late April. The "year" for these licenses runs from July 1 to June 30. In order to get proper notices, approvals, and background checks done, we need to receive the forms well in advance. Mobile home licenses are also on this type of schedule. Animal fancier licenses and direct seller licenses are on a "normal" calendar year schedule.
These forms can be found here.
