With an unparalleled, strategic location and the fastest internet connectivity available anywhere, San Leandro is poised to capitalize on the current economic recovery. To ensure that we maximize our success, San Leandro is expanding its efforts to welcome new businesses with a Business License Tax Holiday. This program will be effective immediately and will run for one year. Virtually all businesses that are new to San Leandro, including start-ups and businesses re-locating from other areas, will be exempt from the tax for their first year of operations. While it will still be necessary for all businesses to acquire a business license, no fee will be charged for those that qualify for the program.
The City will also waive a zoning conformance review fee for new businesses. The qualifying new businesses must commence operations within the 12 months of receiving their business license.
The Business License Tax Holiday excludes out of City contractors, businesses not physically located in San Leandro, residential and commercial property owners, amusement devices, and waste disposal sites.
