If you have received a Notice of Hearing, it is because our records indicate that you have registered previously for a Business Tax Registration Certificate, but have not yet filed for your annual renewal and failed to make your payment for the given tax period.
If you have filed and paid for your annual Business Tax Renewal, then please disregard the mailing. If you have not filed and paid, you have multiple options to bring your account in good standing with the City of Los Angeles.
Our e-filing system speeds and simplifies the filing of your renewal. If a tax liability is due you can use an e-check payment with no additional transaction fee. If a payment is made by check, a service charge will apply. Business with a tax liability of $50,000 or more will be directed to process the payment via an Automated Clearing House.
