Business License Application or Renewal

All business licenses expire on April 30th regardless of when they were purchased during the year. All personal property tax bills must be paid in full prior to obtaining or renewing a business license in Montgomery County. The business license application must first be submitted to the Montgomery County Department of Finance, Division of Treasury, at 255 Rockville Pike, Suite L-15, Rockville, Maryland 20850, for their stamp indicating that all personal property taxes have been paid.

After receiving this stamp, to obtain the actual Business License, file the application at the Clerk of the Circuit Court-License Department, 50 Maryland Ave., North Tower, 1st Floor, Rm 1300, Rockville, MD 20850. Phone: 240-777-9460.

If the business owner is out of the area, the application and license fee can be mailed to the Treasury office. The Treasury office will stamp the application and forward the check and application to the Court.
