General information:

The FileLocal Portal is maintained by a separate agency and allows you to apply for and renew general business licenses and file various business taxes for its subscribing cities:  Bellevue, Everett, Lake Forest Park, Seattle, and Tacoma.

You can pay via ACH Debit (bank account) or Credit/Debit card. ACH Credit payments are not allowed. 


$4.00 for each City you pay in a session.  This fee is non-refundable and is retained by FileLocal to maintain the system.  Individual cities do not receive a fee for this service. 

$1.00 ACH Debit service fee or 3% credit card fee for each tax form or license when payment is required. All financial transactions are handled on a secure site by a third- party provider called KUBRA. This fee is retained by KUBRA and is non-refundable.  No financial information is shared with agency or city personnel or retained by KUBRA.

** There is no fee if no payment is required for a tax or business license form filed.

Importing Business Information:

If you are an existing business in the Seattle license database, you may be able to import certain business data into FileLocal when you initially register.  This import function does not carry over SELF user log-in information, nor does it carry over previously filed electronic return data.  It simply looks up your business and verifies it exists.  You can then import certain business fields instead of having to manually enter data.
