Revenue Division Office Hours Update


The City continues to enhance access to online services to make it easier and more convenient for the public. As the use of online services increases, the need for in-person business tax services continues to decrease. As a result, the City is implementing a pilot plan for reopening the Revenue Division, located within the Development Services Center. The schedule is outlined below and is subject to change. Any updates will be available on this webpage.

The Development Services Center, located at 39550 Liberty Street, plans to reopen on Wednesday, July 7 with a new operating schedule. On Mondays and Wednesdays, the Center will be open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (closed from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.). On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, the Center will be closed while staff focuses on processing online transactions. City staff from the Revenue Division will be available by phone or email to provide assistance.

Business Tax

The Revenue Division collects a business tax from any business operating in Fremont. Businesses located within or outside of the City of Fremont are required to register and pay for a business tax account if conducting business in the City of Fremont.  The registration tax for most businesses operating in Fremont is $30 plus a $4 state-mandated ADA fee. Payment of the initial registration tax results in the creation of a City of Fremont business tax account and the issuance of a City of Fremont business tax certificate. Annual renewal or closure of the City of Fremont business tax account is required prior to the business tax certificate expiration date.  Additional business tax may be due at the time of business tax account renewal, depending on your business activity.  Completion of a New Business Tax Application and payment of a $30 record change tax is required whenever a business name, location, or ownership change occurs.

New Business Tax Applications are available online.

For any questions about business taxes, please contact the City of Fremont Revenue Division at businesstax@fremont.gov or (510) 494-4790.
