Business Licensing – Any person or entity engaged in or carrying on a business within the city is required to obtain a business license.

The program also assists in enforcing civil and criminal actions brought against persons violating the city’s licensing code. Business Licensing issues business licenses and collects all license fees and taxes. Business Licensing is intended to protect customers, neighboring businesses and residences from public health and safety issues and unfair business practices.
Rental Dwelling Licensing – The purpose of the Rental Dwelling program is to increase the desirability of living and working in West Jordan. Owners of rental properties located in West Jordan are required to obtain a Rental Dwelling Business License. Participation in the Good Landlord Program is voluntary. The Good Landlord Program encourages good rental practices that will result in better tenants, reduced crime and improved safety of our community.
