Online Filing for B&O Taxes

The City of Lacey is pleased to announce that online Business & Occupation (B&O) tax filing is available starting Quarter 1, 2024 for any business filing a report with no tax due. This includes businesses who are:

  • filing a report with less than $5,000 of gross income for the quarter, or
  • claiming eligibility for the Small Business Startup B&O Tax Exemption

At this time, businesses making a tax payment must still mail their report and payment as usual.

Annual filings for 2023 need to be made by paper submission, as well.

Please contact the Finance Department with any questions about online filing, at or 360‑486-8730.
