Businesses operating in Yorba Linda without a business license are encouraged to take advantage of the City Council's six-month amnesty period, which will continue through June 30, 2018. Per the Municipal Code, every business operating in Yorba Linda is required to have a business license. In most cases, the fee is between $25.00 and $40.00 per year. Retail establishments and some other business classifications pay a variable fee based on gross receipts.
During the amnesty period, which began on January 1, 2018, any business obtaining a business license from the City will not be charged any back taxes or penalties, regardless of how many years they have been operating in the City. Business owners wishing to obtain a business license can complete an application online on the City's website or visit City Hall.
