The City Council of the City of West Hollywood, at its regular meeting on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, approved an Urgency Ordinance which reduces certain annual Business Tax and Tax Certificate fees by 50 percent for the fiscal year 2021 billing cycle as applied to calendar year 2020 Business Tax payments or renewals. Reductions are applicable to lines 5 and 7 on the renewal form mailed to businesses on February 1, 2021.
For businesses that have already submitted payment, refunds will start to be issued beginning March 15, 2020. Businesses wishing to receive a credit toward 2021 Business Tax payments in lieu of the 50 percent refund should contact City of West Hollywood Accounting/Finance Specialist Laura D’Ambrosia.
