Welcome to Taylorsville.
We are glad you have chosen our Town as the site of your business. To do business in Taylorsville and most municipalities in North Carolina you will need a privilege license.

As of July 1, 2015 the state of North Carolina has discontinued all business licenses.

Special Events

Any person(s)/organizations desiring to organize an event must file an application with the town manager on forms provided by the town manager. The application shall be filed not less than fourteen (14) days before the date on which it is proposed to occur, include a non-refundable fifty (50) dollar application fee, and provide proof of event liability insurance with a base coverage of no less than one million (1,000,000) dollars. A copy of the forms can be found in Appendix III of Chapter 93. Once an event has been approved by the town manager, the applicant must pay a $300.00 deposit. The deposit will be refunded after the event is over provided that the area used for the event has been left in the condition it was in prior to the event. A checklist will be completed by the public works director or his designee before and after the event has occurred which will decide if and how much of the deposit will be refunded. A copy of the checklist can be found in Appendix IV of Chapter 93. The applicant may accompany the public works director or his designee while he/she is completing the checklist. A list of the cleanup charges that will be deducted from the applicants deposit can be found in Chapter 93.52.
