For newly registered businesses in the City of Sausalito, the City's updated business license tax rates go into effect on July 1, 2019. For existing and currently registered businesses, the new rates go into effect on January 1, 2020.

The new rates were part of Measure M, which was approved by Sausalito voters in the November 2018 general municipal election. Measure M reduced the number of business categories from 22 to four and imposed an annual tax based on a percentage of gross receipts, with a minimum tax of $125 per business. The percentage of gross receipts is determined according to the business categories listed below.
  • General retail, wholesale, restaurants, hotels, tour operators, and manufacturing: $1 per $1,000 of gross receipts
  • Commercial and residential rental units: $2 per $1,000 of gross receipts
  • Service and professionals: $3 per $1,000 of gross receipts
  • General contractors and subcontractors: $2 per $1,000 of gross receipts
