*NOTE* If you contacted our online business license processing provider, you may have received incorrect information regarding the deadline for payment of your business license tax. The errant information noted that the payment due date was on 12/31/2021 with penalties assessed if the payment was received after 1/31/2022. We apologize for this mistake and have worked with HdL to correct it. San Anselmo Business License Taxes are due each year on April 15th.

To obtain a Business License you must submit a completed Business License application along with an approved "Use Proposal" (approved by the Planning Department).

Businesses located in the commercial district as well as home-based businesses/occupations need to fill out a "Use Proposal" application for the Planning Department who will determine whether a Use Permit, Parking Variance or Design Review is needed.

San Anselmo permits home-based occupations only if they meet Town regulations designed to ensure that these business do not adversely impact other residents or property in the neighborhood.
