Gross Receipts Business & Occupation Tax

The City of Everett Business and Occupation Tax (B&O) is based on the gross receipts of your business. If your business location is outside the city limits of Everett, you are taxed only on revenues earned within the city.

If you do business in Everett, you must:
  • have a current Everett business license
  • file B&O tax returns

Tax Rate

The present tax rate is 0.1% (0.001). This is multiplied by your gross receipts to compute your taxes due.
