Here’s a quick question: Does St. Louis city honor St. Louis County licenses?
Under Missouri law, each county must impose its own business or occupational licenses. In other words, business licenses issued by one political subdivision are not recognized within another political subdivision. According to the the City of St. Louis License Collector Office FAQ, the only license issued in one county that is recognized by the other 113 counties in Missouri is an auctioneer’s license. The only reciprocal agreement between St. Louis city and St. Louis County involves taxicab and tow truck licensing.
This is not my idea of a free market. Let’s play fair, you guys. Wow, maybe we should use tax dollars to build a big fence between St. Louis city and the rest of St. Louis County.
