City of Pullman license
Who needs a license?
Pullman requires all businesses to obtain a state Department of Revenue tax registration and also register with the city if they are located within city limits. If you don't know if you do business within city limits, call (509) 338-3342 before applying. When you identify your business as being located in Pullman city limits during the state licensing process, city registration information will also be collected to comply with the city business registration requirement.
Additional details about Pullman’s business registration requirement are on the city’s business registration page.
Businesses physically located outside Pullman city limits aren't required to be licensed by Pullman in order to conduct business within city limits.
Some businesses may be exempt from getting a city business license. For more information, please contact the city directly.
