Home Based Businesses


If you are operating your business from a residence in Thompson's Station, you must fill out a Home Occupation Application (PDF) or Residential Business Application (PDF) and submit it to the Town Administrator for approval. Obtaining a business license does not mean you have been approved for a home occupation or residential business, so you should obtain this approval before applying for a business license.
