Tax Certificate Renewal

Once you have obtained a Business Tax Certificate, a courtesy renewal will automatically be mailed to you in December. If your taxes are based on a flat rate you have up to the last day of January before you are delinquent. If your taxes are based on gross receipts you have up to the last day of February before you are delinquent. If you do not receive a renewal notice, please contact the Finance Department at 310-412-5500. Failure to receive a renewal notice does not relieve the business owner of responsibility to renew the Business Tax Certificate.

Penalties for Late Renewal

A penalty of 10% per month (not to exceed 50%) will be added to the total amount of business tax due.
