Building permits expire 6 months after the date of issuance, unless you have had inspections before that time.
If you're approaching your permit expiration date and you know the work will not be complete by then, you can extend your permit another 6 months by requesting a General Inspection. Call the Building Inspector on duty at (504) 658-7135 to schedule your inspection.
If your building permit has expired, you can request a renewal by creating a new permit application of the same type, and including in the Description section that this application is a request for renewal. Please include the permit number. There is a minimum $65.00 charge for renewing an expired building permit, but you will not be charged again for review fees or for a percentage of the construction value that has already been paid for (if your construction value has increased, you may need to pay a percentage of the difference).
To extend a dumpster/construction zone permit online, create a new dumpster/construction zone permit application and state in the Description section that it is a request for extension of your current permit (please include your original permit number).
One Stop Shop can only take applications for new license, or for businesses that are relocating. You can renew your license with the Bureau of Revenue by coming to City Hall, 1300 Perdido St., RM 1W15, or by using one of their Pay Tax Online links.

If the physical location of the business is changing (including home-based businesses), you can use the Business License application at onestopapp.nola.gov. Please include your current City tax account number in the Description section of the application.
