The Federal Trade Commission reports that, “Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks every day.” Federal, State and City offices are not immune from such attacks.
There have been efforts to gain information from City Businesses using phishing emails. Do not respond to such email(s) nor open any links.

These phishing emails have misrepresented the accurate date when payments are due for renewal of business licenses.


Payments for renewal of Graduated Business licenses, must be received by the Office of the License Collector on or before June 1 st of the assessed License Year.

Please, if you suspect a phishing email regarding your business license, contact the License Collector’s Office, at 314-622-4528
