Business Tax Receipt


The City of Orlando is preparing to launch a new Digital Business Tax Receipt service later this Spring. More information will be mailed to you with your Declarations in April; however, Permitting Services will not be able to process Business Tax Receipts from February 20-27, 2017  while we upgrade our technology platform. Same day turnaround on Business Tax Receipt applications will not be available during this time.

NEW businesses may submit an application for a Business Tax Receipt through our Digital Business Permitting site. Applications will be processed in the order they are received beginning February 27, 2017.

Thank you for your patience as we enhance our technology platforms to provide you with more digital services.  

Business Tax Receipt (BTR) (formerly known as Occupational License)

Are you opening a new business in the City of Orlando or are you moving your existing business into City limits? The City of Orlando issues licenses to those businesses, professions or occupations that have locations or branch offices within our City limits. The Business Tax Receipt is proof of payment of the business tax. It is required before a business opens.

The City of Orlando launched a Digital Small Business Permitting website to help guide you through the process and determine all fees and permits needed to open your business. Please click here to open a business in the City of Orlando.

If you have questions regarding the BTR process, please contact us at 407.246.2204 or email
