Calabasas Business License Holders

introduced Ordinance 2014-317, to establish a Business License Program for the City.
The City's new ordinance took effect on September 26, 2014. Therefore, the Los Angeles
County Treasurer and Tax Collector will no longer be providing business licenses
or mailing and accepting renewal fees for any businesses located within the City

dates issued by the County. For any questions regarding the City's new Business
License Program, please contact Maureen Tamuri at (818) 224-1600 of the Community

divided between the Department of Public Health and the Treasurer and Tax Collector.

Los Angeles County Tax Collector reminds taxpayers that property
tax payments must be received or postmarked by the delinquency date to avoid penalties.
If a payment is received after the delinquency date, with no postmark, the payment
is considered late and penalties will be imposed, in accordance with State law.
Taxpayers who send a payment by mail are cautioned that the United States Postal
Service only postmarks certain mail depending on the type of postage used, and may
not postmark mail on the same day deposited by a taxpayer. To assist taxpayers in
understanding how to avoid penalties that could result from postmark issues, the
Tax Collector has compiled important related information on how to
Avoid Penalties by Understanding Postmarks.
Requirement for Registration of Tax Agents
- Beginning July 1, 2013, anyone defined as a Tax
Agent will be required to register annually before representing taxpayers before
