City of Alexandria Implements New Business Tax System

News Highlights:

  • The City has implemented a new business tax system for business license and business personal property taxes, which will create changes in the process for license renewal and tax return forms.

More Information: 

The City of Alexandria recently implemented a new business tax system for business license and business personal property taxes. The new system has created significant changes to business license renewal applications, which will be mailed to all registered business owners later this month. 

The following changes will affect businesses currently registered with the City:

  • Each business has been issued a new account number or numbers for business license and business personal property taxes. All future assessments, billings, returns and correspondence will reflect the new account number or numbers. 
  • In addition to the information normally reported on business license renewal applications, businesses will be asked to provide information on their corporate officers, if applicable. 
  • The appearance of the annual business license renewal form and business personal property tax return will change to accommodate the new system. 

In addition to implementing the new business tax system, the City is currently working on creating additional payment methods for business license taxes.  When these new methods become available, the Finance Department will announce them at, issue a press release, and send an e-mail to all businesses on the department’s e-mail list. Businesses wishing to be included on the e-mail list for business tax announcements will be able to provide their e-mail addresses on a flyer included with the 2010 business license renewal application.
