Filing Frequencies

Filing frequencies are assigned based on what you estimate your annual gross income to be for your business.  After you registered your business with the City, we sent you a welcome letter.  The welcome letter included your:

  • City Account Number 
  • Business tax filing frequency (monthly, quarterly, annual)
  • Information on how to file and pay tax returns and license renewals 

Due Dates

 2013 - 2018 due dates

  • Monthly returns are due the last day of the month following the tax month (e.g. June tax return is due July 31)
  • Quarterly returns are due the end of the month following the tax quarter (e.g. Quarter 1 tax return is due April 30.)
  • Annual returns are due January 31 (e.g. Annual 2017 tax return is due January 31, 2018) 

If the due date falls on a weekend or legal holiday, the due date is extended to the next business day.
