§ 801-19. Penalty for Delinquency  


Latest version.
  • Except as otherwise specifically provided, all annual and semiannual renewal license fees shall be considered delinquent if not paid within 15 days after the expiration of the preceding license period. For each month or fraction of a month thereafter during which the fees remain delinquent, there shall be added to the regular license amount a penalty of 5 percent, which shall be collected in the same manner as the license fee.

    For the purpose of this section, any application for a license made by the same individual or firm, located at the same address, for the same type of license as previously issued shall be considered a renewal application subject to delinquent renewal fees if the previous license expired within one year of the application date.

    The addition of delinquency penalties to the license fees provided for shall not operate to exempt a person liable therefor from any fine or other penalty for the violation of any provision of this chapter or of any other section of the Cincinnati Municipal Code governing licensing of trades, businesses, occupations, places of business, vehicles, machines or devices.
