Doing Business in Palm Beach

Business Tax Receipt

Our mission is to deliver the highest quality service and support to the Palm Beach business community with excellence, integrity, and efficiency.

What the Tax Receipt Is

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 program. For more information, see our helpful brochure "Thinking of Opening a Business in Palm Beach?"

When You Need One

If you engage or manage any business, profession, or perform any business within our town 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 and in some cases, to each professional operating within your business.

Applying for a Receipt

The Business Tax Receipt Application is available on our website. You may apply in person for a Business Tax Receipt between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at Town Hall, 360 South County Road.
