Miami-Dade County continues to monitor coronavirus (COVID-19). Get the latest updates

Local Business Tax Receipt
(formerly known as Occupational License)

As a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and to safeguard our employees and customers, we are strongly encouraging our tax payers and customers to conduct any Tax Collector business transactions including paying Real Estate Property Taxes, Tangible Personal Property Taxes, Local Business Taxes, Auto Tag registrations "Renew Express" and Auto Tag registrations "GoRenew," online, instead of visiting our Public Service Office in person.

Please continue to follow guidelines issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and practice "social distancing" in public areas.

Local business tax receipts for each place of business, and for each separate local business tax classification at the same location, are required by Miami-Dade County and each municipality (if applicable).

The County issues local business tax receipts for one year, beginning October 1 and expiring on September 30. A business located within a municipality is required to obtain both a city receipt and a County receipt.

Once you receive your local business tax receipt, it must be prominently displayed at your place of business, in open view to the public, and subject to inspection by Miami-Dade County.

Receipts are transferable when there is a change of ownership, business location or trade name.

Before starting the application process, review your business tax category to see if you have additional requirements or are eligible for an exemption.

New applicants must use the online application system or fill out and print the Local Business Tax receipt application and submit it by mail or in person.

To pay your local business tax online as a renewal, you will need to provide your receipt number.
