Dear Business License Applicant:
Enclosed please find the business license application you requested. When completing this application be sure to press firmly, as there are four copies to go through. Also pay particular attention to the ADDRESS DATA. The physical address and parcel numbers are needed in the top portion. If you are not the owner of the property and do not know the parcel number, please list the owner’s
name. The mailing address is needed in the lower portion of the application. Please be aware that the “Doing Business As” portion will appear on your license
as your company title.
As of May 10, 2011 the Board of Supervisors passed Resolution #R11-30, Ordinance #99-92 increasing the initial business license fee. The processing fee is now $97.00 for one or more business transactions in one location. Should you have several business transactions, but in different locations, you will need a separate
business license for each location.
A WORKER’S COMPENSATION DECLARATION MUST be on file with your application. You MUST also complete the HOME COMPLIANCE FORM, whether you operate your business out of your home or not. If these forms are not enclosed, please contact this office and they will be forwarded to you. A yearly renewal fee of $22.00 was also reinstated in this resolution. Renewal notices are mailed and are required to be returned to this office by August 31 of each year. It is your responsibility to be aware of when the renewal notices are sent, as non-receipt of renewal notice and renewal fee does not exempt you from
the resulting cancellation of your business license. The business license fee covers July 1st through June 30th of each fiscal year.
If your business is a lodging facility, you are required per Mono County ordinance 3.28 to get a TRANSIENT OCCUPANCY TAX CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE to
relieve you of any back transient occupancy taxes. To obtain a copy of the ordinance, please contact our office. If your business is a lodging facility, please MAKE NOTE of it on your application.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at (760) 932-5486 or send an email to rhansen [at] mono [dot] ca [dot] gov.
