Any person renting real property in the City is required to obtain a City of Fredericksburg Landlord License (Business License). Please see Code of Fredericksburg, Section 70-363, for more details or call the Real Estate office at 540-372-1207.
The fee for the Landlord Business License is $25 OR $0.16 per $100.00 of gross rental receipts, whichever is greater. The first $3,600 of gross rental income is exempt.
Two examples of fee calculation:
A) An annual lease amount between $3,601 and $19,225 would pay the $25 fee. B) A lease in the amount of $24,000 would pay $32.64 $24,000 - $3,600 = $20,400
$20,400 x .0016 = $32.64
