Local business owners pay property tax on their residential property and on their commercial property. Out-of-town businesses pay absolutely no taxes to the Town of Luseland and, therefore, are required to obtain a Town of Luseland Business Licence.
Section 3. of Town of Luseland Bylaw 2002-1 1, reads in part as follows:
No person shall carry on within the Town any business, industry, calling or occupation ....
unless he possesses a valid and subsisting licence for such purpose issued in accordance with the provisions of this bylaw.
In accordance with Section 4,
Persons required to be licensed under the provisions of this bylaw are those persons carrying on..... businesses, industries, callings or occupations..... who are not operating the businesses from property that is commercially assessed within the Town.
Pursuant to Section 9 (b):
Any person who contravenes any of the provisions of this bylaw or fails to comply therewith shall commit an offense and be liable to the penalty as herein provided.
It is every resident's responsibility, when you hire businesses from out of town, to ensure that those businesses have a town business license. Each business who has obtained a business license has been provided with a license document and must be able to produce it for inspection upon demand
