Sea Isle City’s Mercantile Business Licenses and Mercantile Rental Permits for 2021 are required by May 1.
To avoid a $50 late fee, all applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office on or before the grace period ends on May 30 (late fee goes into effect June 1).
Business Licenses and Rental Permits can be purchased at City Hall, 233 JFK Boulevard, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by mail by submitting a completed application form.
To download an application form, go to www.seaislecitynj.us, click the “Departments/City Clerk” link on the home page, and then click “City Clerk Forms.”
Due to COVID-19, the second floor of City Hall (including the City Clerk’s Office) is closed to the public. However, City Hall’s lobby on the first floor is open. Once you enter the lobby, please use your cell phone to call 609-263-4461, ext. 1216, and a member of the Clerk’s Office will assist you.
Important Info for All Landlords: Any property in Sea Isle City being rented to tenants (seasonally or year-round) is required to have a Mercantile Rental Permit issued from the City Clerk’s Office – regardless if the owner is renting out the property on their own, using a local realtor, or using an online vacation rental site such as VRBO, Home Away or Airbnb.
