Business Tax Receipts
The City Manager has designated the Finance Director as the Business Tax Receipt Official and she is therefore responsible for processing business tax receipt applications, renewals and maintenance of the business tax receipt database.
Sec. 205.013, Florida Statutes, is the act relating to what has been known as "Local Occupational License Tax". As of January 1, 2007, F.S. 205.013 has been amended to refer to "Local Business License Tax" in an attempt to clarify the purpose of the business tax and to prevent unscrupulous persons from presenting a local occupational license to consumers as proof of competency to perform various repairs and services.
Each month a list of new businesses applying for Business Tax Receipts are recorded and provided to the City Council so that they may contact these businesses and welcome them to the City of West Melbourne.
