As the Union County Tax Administrator, Lissa Gibson collects local county tax and enforces the County Occupational and Net Profit License Fee Ordinance as directed by the Fiscal Court.

Occupational taxes are withheld from gross wages earned in Union County, and submitted on a quarterly basis.  The current tax rate is .5%.
Net Profit license fees are collected from the net profits of all business ventures in Union County.  Public and private businesses, lessors of rental property, farms and farming operations, and independent contractors are all examples of taxable entities.  The Net Profit license fees are collected on the 15th day of the 4th month following the fiscal year end and are based on Federal returns.  The current license fee is .5%.
All persons doing business in Union County are required by ordinance to complete and submit a questionnaire to the Tax Administrator. To avoid interest and penalty, returns must be submitted by the due date.
