Airway Heights elevates local licensing with BLS

The city sited between Fairchild Air Force Base and Spokane International Airport is aptly named Airway Heights.

Today, that high-flying community is the 99th local partner in the state Business Licensing Service (BLS).

Home to more than 8,000 residents that support the nearby aviation installations, Airway Heights has about 300 active business that will be able to combine state and local licensing in a streamlined application or renewal process.

It is the seventh Spokane County city to join BLS with nearby Cheney, Medical Lake and Springdale joining in the coming month.

Welcome, Airway Heights!

BLS Website Moving to dor.wa.gov

Business licensing information moves to Revenue's website this year


Partners --

We are in process of merging the Business Licensing Service (BLS) website into the Department of Revenue website (dor.wa.gov).

You may have noticed that city license information and business license application instructions are already available on dor.wa.gov. Additional state endorsement and business licensing information will be added there later this year.

As we move content from the BLS website, we will automatically redirect you to the new pages.

Questions? Contact us at dorblspartner@dor.wa.gov or (360) 705.6777.

Home of Aplets and Cotlets, Cashmere joins BLS

The city of Cashmere in Chelan County is the 98th  BLS city partner. Cashmere is a city of 3000 along the Wenatchee River that is now connected to neighbors Leavenworth and East Wenatchee in the state’s combined licensing one-stop for agency and city registrations.

Home to more than 200 businesses, Cashmere's BLS partnership is a benefit to local shops that sell widgets and gadgets as well as a local candy maker that sells Aplets and Cotlets.

Liberty Orchards, founded as a local apple farm in 1918, has been making its signature fruit confections in Cashmere for more than 75 years. 

Cashmere is famous for its abundant agriculture and opportunities for outdoor recreation with nearby locations for whitewater rafting and technical mountain climbing. The cities of Monroe -- also a BLS partner -- and Cashmere make up both ends of the Stevens Pass Scenic Byway on U.S. Route 2.

Welcome, Cashmere.
