Extension of Annual City Business License Tax Submittals and Postponement of New User Fees

Manhattan Beach, CA (March 18, 2020) – Recognizing the economic impact that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) will have on our local businesses, the City Council has extended the deadline for Annual Business License Tax Submittals to June 30, 2020. Additionally, the City Council postponed the activation of new user fees (Community Development Related and others) until July 1, 2020.

Mayor Richard Montgomery stated, “Our businesses are vital and cherished part of our community. During this time, we understand the impact that the State, County, and our own restrictions will have on local businesses. This is just one action that the City has taken to provide much needed relief to our businesses.”

In order to prevent the further spread of COVID-19, it is recommended that each person:

  • Practice social distancing.
  • Stay home if you are sick or need to care for a sick family member.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.   
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces often.
  • If you haven’t done so already, please consider getting immunized against the flu. This will relieve what could be a highly impacted healthcare system.
