With our current Business License system, we are not able to accept online payments for the Mill/DID taxes. To pay Business License taxes, business owners will need to either come into our office 1010 10th Street, Suite 2100 or mail in their “Declaration of Gross Receipts” report with the payment to PO Box 3442, Modesto Ca 95353.
Refunds for overpayment will be processed within four weeks. In the event of a balance on previously unpaid taxes, any refund due will be applied towards this balance. Refunds will be issued in the form of a check.
These are the forms that would need to be attached to your business license renewal depending on the type of business.
Subcontractor Adjustment List (PDF)
This form is for General Contractors to adjust the amounts paid to a licensed sub-contractor. General Contractors must fill this form out and attach it to their renewal to be allowed this adjustment.
Apportionment Worksheet (PDF)
A taxpayer may reduce total receipts from the operation of business or from work performed in the City by a percentage that represents activities that occur outside the city. If you believe this applies to your business please complete this BL-2 Apportionment worksheet.
When a customer updates their Business address, they will need to fill out a Notice of Information Change Form (PDF). If the business has moved to a residential address, a Home Business Permit and Agreement (PDF) is also required. If the business will still be inside the city limits, there is a five dollar ($5) fee for changing the Business address. There is no fee for the Business address change if moving outside the city limits.
$5000 X .002 = $10
For a list of allowed Adjustments, see the back of the Declaration of Gross Receipts form or contact the Business Licensing Division. Be sure to write the adjustments on the appropriate lines on the back portion of the form that is returned to the city.
