The Harrodsburg City Commission gave first reading to a revised ordinance on the occupational license tax.

At their regular meeting on Monday, July 25, the commissioners gave first reading to ordinance 2022-11, which revises the ordinance covering occupational license tax. There are only two revisions: one changing the date the ordinance goes into effect from July 2022 to October 2022 and another raising the percentage on the occupational license tax from 1 percent to 1.5 percent of “all wages and compensation paid or payable in the city for work done or services performed or rendered in the city by every resident and nonresident who is an employee…” and “…the net profits from business conducted in the city by a resident or nonresident business entity.”

The city commission did not discuss the ordinance Monday. City Clerk Shavonna Huffman said they may need to revise the ordinance to move the date on when the percentages go into effect to Jan. 1, 2023.
