Getting a business license

Permits and licenses may be required to conduct business in Marysville. All businesses must register for city and state business and occupation taxes. Construction, tenant improvements and certain land use activities require building and land-use permits from Community Development Services.

How to Apply

Businesses register with the city and state at the same time. You will receive a master license from the state, showing both your city and state business licenses. Marysville business licenses are renewed annually.

If your business is located within the home, or your business is registered to your home address, you may be required to obtain a Home Occupation Business License  by submitting a Home Occupation Application.

The Business License Application and business license addendum may be completed and submitted online or by mail to:
Business Licensing Service
Department of Revenue
P.O. Box 9304
Olympia, WA 98507-9034

You may also submit the application in person at the:
Marysville Public Works Building
80 Columbia Ave.
Marysville, WA 98270


Be advised, there is a $65 master application fee and $19 state registration fee to apply. You will receive your business license four to six weeks after submitting your application. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the City Business Licensing Office at (360) 363-8202.
