The City of Richmond Finance Payment portal allows businesses to file and pay their Admissions, Lodging and Meals (ALM)
taxes online by creating a user account.
First time businesses can begin using the service after they register
a new account. You will need to have your Tax ID and City of Richmond Account Number during the registration process.
Once you have completed the setup of your user account and logged in, you can complete the online form to file your taxes
and submit your payment by credit card or e-Check.
ADMISSIONS, LODGING, AND MEALS TAXES
