OLYMPIA, WASH. – Aug. 22, 2019 – Medical Lake has become the third city in Spokane County this summer to join the Department of Revenue’s Business Licensing Service.
Businesses on the West Plains of Spokane County serve an international airport, regional university, large DSHS campus, and major Air Force Base, as well as thousands of residents. These West Plains cities -- Airway Heights, Cheney, and Medical Lake – are connected with more than 100 cities that sync up local licensing with state registration and renewal requirements. BLS city partners now stretch across Spokane County, from Medical Lake on the West Plains to Liberty Lake at the Idaho state line.
“We think our businesses will like the streamlined service,” said Doug Ross, Medical Lake city administrator. “Our city license now links easily to hundreds of other state and local licenses. Even better, the service uses the familiar and friendly online portal where businesses already report state taxes.”
More than 300 businesses will immediately see the benefits of expedited service. BLS is free for all participating Washington cities. Find out more at bls.dor.wa.gov.
