What is a Business Tax Receipt?
A business tax receipt is a tax levied upon all businesses within the municipal boundaries. Payment of the tax receipt does not certify or imply the competence of the licensee. Within Florida, most cities and counties have a business tax receipt.
If you engage or manage any business, profession, or perform any business within our City limits, you need to purchase a tax receipt. If your business has more than one location, a separate tax receipt is required for each location. A separate tax receipt is issued for each use performed within your business.
Effective Monday, October 23, 2017, you may apply for a Business Tax Receipt between the hours of 8:00 AM and 3:30 PM, Monday through Friday, in the Community Improvement Department of City Hall, located at 100 NW 1st Ave., Delray Beach, FL 33444. Our phone number is (561) 243-7209. A secured drop off box is located next to the cashier window for your convenience.
