What do I do if I discontinue or withdraw from the business, or move to another location?
A "Statement of Discontinuance, Change of Residence..." form must be completed and filed with the Town Clerk if one of the following occurs before the expiration:
- Business is discontinued
- One or more of the persons named on the certificate is withdrawn or retired from the business or partnership
