Who needs a Business License?

Any business that generates revenue within the City of Escalon.

Any Escalon business that does not have a commercial storefront, office, commercial or industrial location is considered to be a home-based business, even if the sales or services are performed outside the residence. Post office boxes, whether U.S. or private, can only be used as mailing addresses and cannot be registered as commercial locations.
