As the equinox approaches, the jigsaw puzzle pieces connecting South Sound businesses are falling into place.
Today, BLS welcomes the city of Yelm the newest local licensing partner. Dubbed "The Pride of the Prairie," Yelm is linking its 1600 businesses to the same service used by 20+ communities in Lewis, Mason, Pierce, and Thurston counties. Yelm is the 82nd to add the service where local businesses can apply for more than 400 different required registrations in a single transaction. Businesses also use their secure account to login to renew all of these licenses and report state taxes in a streamlined online process.
Revenue supported Yelm with the implementation of a new fee-exempt licensing process for select businesses that qualify. The agency is implementing similar solutions for all its local licensing partners this year as required under Chapter 35.90.080 RCW.
