City looking to claim delinquent net-profit taxes

By Todd Martin

Shelbyville Mayor Tom Hardesty said he has had enough.

During the City Council’s regular meeting Thursday, Hardesty let the council know that freeloading businesses won’t get a pass any longer.

Hardesty’s comments reflect a serious problem the city has with collecting the Net Profit License Fee from local businesses.

Currently there are 279 city businesses that are delinquent on taxes, 133 of them for multiple years, and 31 of those are four or five years behind. That represents thousands of dollars that the city is owed.
