The City of Tukwila has partnered with the Washington State Department of Revenue’s Business Licensing Service (BLS). As of the March 28, 2019 effective date, BLS will process all City of Tukwila business licenses and renewals. Businesses will be able to use BLS to apply for, or renew, a City of Tukwila business license at the same time they apply for, or renew, other state and local licenses.
Postcards notifying businesses of the change will be mailed out to all Tukwila businesses in early March. Informational outreach to the Chamber of Commerce and posts to social media will occur over the next several weeks. In addition, the Finance Department will be setting up a kiosk so that businesses can apply to the BLS for their business licenses at the front counter in City Hall.
