COVID-19 BUSINESS LICENSE FEE RELIEF

The City of La Mesa will be waiving business license fees for all in-city businesses (businesses with a physical location in the city) through April 2021. The $4.00 state-mandated CASp fee still applies. If paying online, the fees cannot be waived and renewals should instead be mailed to the address provided on the form. Thank you for being a La Mesa business.
