The State Board of Equalization has announced a new Electronic Registration system, aka eReg, effective June 18, 2012. 

Home Occupation Permits
Any Dixon business that does not have a commercial storefront, office, or industrial location is considered a home-based business and therefore requires a home occupation permit. There is a one-time $150 application fee for the permit and it must be submitted with the Home Occupation Permit Application.
