Planning on opening a business in the City of Hanford?
Those that plan to conduct business in Hanford will need a business tax certificate/business license from the City of Hanford. To obtain a business tax certificate, you may choose to print the business tax license application from the City of Hanford website or request it in person from the City of Hanford at 315 N Douty Street in Hanford. Prior to obtaining a city business license for a new business, a new owner of an existing business, a name change to the business, or a new location for an existing business, a Zoning and Safety Certificate of Occupancy application is required.
Below are other additional information that may be needed as a resource for your business. For any further questions please schedule an appointment with the Hanford Chamber.
For detailed information regarding the City of Hanford's Business Licenses and Registration we suggest also reviewing Title 5 of the Hanford Municipal Code or you may review Title 17 regarding Zoning which includes business signage.
