Business Tax Renewal

Business Tax Certificate Receipts expire on September 30th of each year. Although the city normally mails renewal notices during July of each year, the tax is due on or before September 30th regardless of whether you have received a renewal notice or not. To avoid a late charge penalty, payment must be received by this office no later than September 30th. 

Renew Online

  • You must have your mailed renewal notice that provides the necessary numbers required for on-line payments.
  • If there are any changes to the business name, type of work, ownership, phone number, mailing information or address, the renewal must be done by mail or in person.

Florida Statute 205.053(1) imposes a delinquent penalty for business taxes renewed after September 30 of each year, as follows:

  • 10% penalty if renewed in October
  • 15% penalty if renewed in November
  • 20% penalty if renewed in December
  • 25% penalty if renewed after December 31

If you have not received a renewal notice, but would like to renew, please call 727-893-7241 to obtain your ID and Pin numbers to complete your renewal online.
