Business Tax Payments

Pay Business Tax Online

Thank you for your interest in the City of San Diego Business Tax Online Payment Service. To use this service, please note the following conditions.

  • There must be NO change in the amount due for the Business Tax Certificate

    If changes to your Business Tax Certificate result in an increase or decrease in the amount due, you must make your payment by mail or in person. Typical changes that would result in a modification of fees include: change in employee count, change in business activity, and change in business location. Please contact the Business Tax Division at 619- 615-1500 for additional information or questions.

You may pay your Business Tax billing statement online using Visa, MasterCard, and Electronic Fund Transfer (eCheck). Payments processed after 4:30 p.m. (PST) will post the following business day; any penalties accrued during this time may apply.
