New state law changes business license process for Gwinnett businesses
Business

Gwinnett County - (submitted by Gwinnett County Government) Businesses in Gwinnett County are receiving occupation tax certificate renewal forms in the mail, but before certificates can be renewed, applicants must comply with new state requirements that went into effect on January 1. During the 2011 legislative session, the Georgia General Assembly passed the Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act (House Bill 87), that places new requirements on local governments and businesses to ensure they comply with federal and state immigration laws.

All occupation tax certificate applicants must now submit an affidavit called Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements, along with a secure and verifiable identification document, such as a passport, driver's license, or military ID. Renewal applications will be accepted in person at the License and Revenue Office located at 446 West Crogan Street in Lawrenceville from 8:00am to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday, or through License and Revenue's new electronic renewal system at www.gwinnettlicrev.com.

Private employers with 500 or more employees must register for and use the federal E-Verify program that checks the employment eligibility of all new hires. For more information, visit www.gwinnettlicrev.com or call 678.377.4100.
