The City's Community Planning and Development Department (CP&D) will review all certificate of use applications prior to the issuance of a Business Tax Receipt (BTR) from our office. Some businesses will need to have fire and health inspections, before receiving a BTR. Additional information may be found on the CP&D Application and Fee Schedule page.
To apply for a business tax receipt, a perspective business owner must come in person with the necessary documents and payment. If the business has been incorporated, a copy of the articles of incorporation, and the company's federal identification number must be provided. For a business that has not been incorporated but has a fictitious name, evidence that the name has been registered with the Department of State Division of Corporations in Tallahassee will be required.
