BID Tax Information
Your BID tax funds the Capitol Hill BID 501(c)6 organization that provides the Capitol Hill commercial area with numerous valuable services that help to create and maintain a vibrant neighborhood in which to do business. Under the law, DC’s Office of Tax and Revenue is responsible for processing your BID tax and then transferring funds to the Capitol Hill BID. If not paid properly, your taxes may be credited to real property taxes and you will accrue penalties and interest for unpaid BID taxes.
