Business Licenses

City of Mountlake Terrace Business Licensing
The City of Mountlake Terrace requires all businesses located within the city limits, or those who conduct business within the city limits, to be licensed with the city. Mountlake Terrace participates in the State Business Licensing Service partnership. This is a combined licensing system through the Department of Revenue, making it easier to connect state and local requirements in one annual transaction for most businesses.

For fast service, apply for a business license at the Department of Revenue (DOR) business page. For a business license fee schedule and other important information, click here.
