Welcome to the Campbell County Occupational License Office!

We are responsible for the collection of the Occupational License Tax within Chapter 110 of the Campbell County Code of Ordinances. Every person, association, corporation, or other business entity engaging in an occupation, business, trade, or profession is required to file and pay occupational license tax. Business activity includes rental property, sole proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations.
