Business Licenses

License Requirements

If you have a business located within the Monroe city limits you will need to register your business with the city and state. The City of Monroe and State of Washington, Business Licensing Service, are involved in a combined licensing one-stop system that allows you to obtain state and city licenses at the same time. You will receive a master license from the state, showing your city general business endorsement.

Required Documents

The fee for a Monroe license is $50 plus a $19 state fee - paid to the Business License service during the State application process.
