Business License Update
Posted March 16, 2020
Tigard will not be accepting Business License applications/renewals and related payments at City Hall. Telephone and email applications and renewals are encouraged. Tigard will accept mailed renewal payments.
The City of Tigard has a Business License Program regulated by the Tigard Municipal Code that requires anyone engaging in any business within the city limits to pay a business license fee unless specifically exempt by State or Federal statute. The city does not regulate businesses. Upon payment of your Business License, a Business License Receipt will be issued and must be posted in a conspicuous location at your business. A Business License Receipt does not imply city approval or endorsement of the business or its location.
The Tigard Business License is based on a calendar year with a December 31st expiration date. New businesses operating in Tigard after June 30th of the current year will pay a pro-rated fee through December 31st. (Please see the License Fee below for pro-rated amounts). Thereafter, the annual business license fee shall be due in full by January 1st each year.
