|A Town business license is required if a business is located within the Town limits, or if an agent of the business comes into Town to conduct business.|
|Business License Application Information|
|Business License Applications are available online and must be submitted by mail only. The license tax due can be determined based on the type of business activity. Those businesses which are based on retail sales, wholesale, manufacturing and/or jobbing have taxes based on sliding scale. All other businesses have taxes based on flat fees as set forth in Town Code Sec. 14.20.115. Flat-fee based businesses are pro-rated, by quarter, from the date of application to the end of the year.
If you are unsure of your classification, please call the Business License Division at 408.354.6835. An incorrect classification can delay issuance of a business license certificate.
