City of Yakima License Overview
The City of Yakima requires a City of Yakima Business License for all businesses operating within city limits. An important piece of the business license review process is checking to make sure the proposed business use is approved in that particular Zoning District. If you have questions about whether your proposed business is compatable with the current zoning of the property, please call the City of Yakima’s Planning Division at 575-6183.
There are other license (Regulatory License) requirements within the City of Yakima for specific kinds of businesses (Heating Journeyman, Secondhand Dealers, Pawn Brokers, Taxi Drivers, etc.).
We have application packets geared toward your type of business. Choose the item below that best describes your business:
Commercially located business within City limits
Out of Town Business that conducts business within City limits
Mobile vendor who wants to sell door to door (also requires a Regulatory License)
Below are links to Regulatory License Application Packets specific for the listed business:
Peddler/Solicitor (door to door sales)
Heating Journeyman (successfully passing a test is required in order to obtain this license, please call our office for more information)
