What is a Business Tax Receipt?
A Business Tax Receipt (formerly known as an Occupational License) is required for the privilege of engaging in or managing any business, profession, or occupation within the City limits. A separate Business Tax Receipt is required for each place and type of business.
How to Apply
The City of Dunedin has two different types of Business Tax Receipts; 1) for home-based businesses and 2) for commercial business locations. Please select the appropriate application below.
Please bring your completed application to our offices. Taxes vary based on square footage, inventory, number of employees, etc.
Annual renewal of your Business Tax Receipt is required by September 30th of each year. Renewal notices are mailed to receipt holders in August and due by September 30th. Please be sure to renew by September 30th to avoid penalties per Sec. 70-73 of City Code.
Do you qualify for a Business Tax Receipt exemption by State law? If so, please complete an Application for Business Tax Receipt Exemption, attach the required proof of exemption, and submit them with your Business Tax Receipt Application.
