Post Date:05/22/2020 11:53 AM

On Thursday, May 14, 2020, the Suwanee City Council voted to approve a business license tax credit in an effort to offset hardships created by COVID-19.

Suwanee’s program provides up to $500 dollars in business license tax credits that can be applied to any City of Suwanee business for either the 2020 or the 2021 business license. This program also applies to new business that open thru March 2021.

“With citizens practicing social distancing and other restrictions, an enormous economic strain has been placed on our local businesses,” said Suwanee Mayor Jimmy Burnette. “The city council developed this program in hopes of helping businesses make it through these increasing difficult times.”

In addition to the tax credit, the City of Suwanee also extended its business license deadline from the original date of March 31, 2020 to May 29, 2020.

“We’ve chosen to undertake this tax credit in order to respond to the economic challenges many are currently facing,” said Marty Allen, Suwanee City Manager. “We greatly value our business community and want to support their success. The city will continue to evaluate our options as the situation evolves.”
