PRICHARD, Ala. (WKRG) — The City of Prichard is giving local businesses a grace period to renew their business licenses. 

The 2022 Amnesty Program is a grace period given so Prichard business owners can get a current business license and settle all fines and penalty fees including:

  • Sales
  • Seller’s use
  • Consumer’s use
  • Rental lodgings
  • Contractor’s gross receipts
  • Utility taxes

The program was created to help business owners who work within the city’s limits avoid any citations for not having an up-to-date business license. The citation may result in an appearance with the City of Prichard Municipal Court and fines which can go up to $500. 

The grace period will end April 30, 2022, and is intended for “anyone with an inactive business license and is currently operating a business or has a citation from the City of Prichard Municipal Court, will have the opportunity to settle them without being summoned/subpoenaed,” according to a news release from the City of Prichard. 

the City of Prichard Municipal Court will be open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 216 E Prichard Ave. For more information, call 251-452-7806.
