BUSINESS TAXES, LICENSES & REGULATIONS INFORMATION

The Lawndale Municipal Code (LMC) requires every person engaged in any business operating within the City to be properly licensed, as well as to be in accordance with the standards for Planning (zoning), Building and Fire Safety, and Public Health.

After your business tax application has been processed, you will be issued a receipt of business registration (deposit only subject to approval). All business license/tax certificates are issued for a calendar year and expire December 31st of each year.

OPERATING A BUSINESS WITHOUT BUSINESS TAX CERTIFICATE IS A MISDEMEANOR.
