Once your business is up and running, you will want to maintain good standing with the District government: file 2-year reports with DCRA’s Corporation Division, renew your business license, report your income, and pay your taxes. Your license renewals and payments will depend on the type of business you operate, its ownership structure, and the date of your original business license application.
