Calculating the Tax Due
Building Contractors with a fixed place of business outside the City of Walnut Creek may choose a quarterly or annual Business License, depending on the duration of the project.
Building Contractors with a fixed place of business inside the City of Walnut Creek must maintain a continuous, annual Business License.
Business License rates differ for General Engineering "A" Contractors, General Building "B" Contractors, and Specialty "C"-type contractors.
Please see the Contractor Business License application for current rates.
Please be aware that you may be assessed a monthly 10% penalty for late payment of your license.
