Business Resources

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues, Issaquah is committed to supporting local businesses with resources, information, promotion, regional collaboration and more.  

Regional Survey

We invite you to take this regional Economic Impact Survey so we better understand the current and anticipated impacts to Issaquah businesses and non-profits due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Please participate before March 31, 2020.

This survey will identify early local and regional impacts of COVID-19; inform strategies for regional economic recovery and development; and maximize the allocation of badly-needed federal and state recovery aid.

B&O Tax Relief

Mayor Pauly signed a proclamation providing relief to small businesses in Issaquah by extending the deadline for Business & Occupation (B&O) taxes.
