Beginning April 4, 2022, St. Louis residents can apply for and renew business licenses online using the payitSt.Louis digital payment system. Available through web browsers and mobile apps, the digital portal will service all six licensing needs within the city: convention and tourism, graduated business licensing, manufacturing, hotel/motel, restaurant receipts, and gross receipts for public garages and parking lots.
When we think about identity in the digital world, it usually involves a username and password, but Merit (originally called Sigma) wants to help governments issue digital credentials that link back to a government license database with the goal of bringing an end to flimsy paper cards.
PayIt has been named a GovTech 100 company for 2022, earning the distinction from Government Technology magazine for the sixth consecutive year.
