The COVID-19 emergency and Stay Home, Stay Healthy order has significantly and adversely affected local businesses located within Snoqualmie.
“We recognize the financial challenges local businesses are experiencing, both those deemed essential and non-essential,” said Mayor Matt Larson. “These pressures may threaten their ability to remain solvent and meet ongoing financial obligations. To support the viability of local businesses during this emergency, the city will temporarily defer or extend payment for business and occupation licenses and taxes while they work toward financial stability.”
Business and occupation (B&O) and sales taxes generate revenue for the city’s budget, allowing the city to provide high standards of service to the public, maintain and improve infrastructure, and ensure a strong economy.
By supporting business resiliency through B&O tax deferment, the city hopes to reduce impacts on goods, services, and jobs that contribute to the social and economic well-being of Snoqualmie residents.
Snoqualmie businesses that would benefit from B&O tax deferment should contact Debbie Kinsman at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 425-766-2231 Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to noon.
