City of San Diego Business Tax
The City of San Diego issues a “Business Tax Certificate” instead of a business license. To obtain a certificate, you must apply for a Business Tax Certificate via online, in person, or by mail. Per sandiego.gov, it takes up to two weeks to receive a receipt of your business tax certificate.
To apply and keep your certificate active, there is an annual fee due to the city of San Diego, which is based on the number of employees your business has. For businesses with 12 or fewer employees, the annual rate is $34.00 (with an additional $4 state-mandated fee), and businesses with 13 or more employees have an annual rate of $125.00 plus $5.00 per employee.
The city tax application must be submitted within 15 days of the business start date. Businesses that fail to pay within this time frame are subject to a late fee of $25.00 or 10% of the amount owed, whichever is greater. Some surcharges apply for businesses that are found operating in the City of San Diego but have not paid the Business Tax.
