City of Miami Business Tax Receipt
A Miami Business Tax Receipt is required for engaging in any business, profession or occupation in the City of Miami. The Business Tax Receipt was formerly known as an Occupational License.
For an individual, partnership, or corporation to apply for a Business Tax Receipt, a valid and current Certificate of Use may first need to be obtained from the City of Miami Planning and Zoning Department. Additionally, background checks and/or special application forms are required for some businesses.
To apply for a Miami Business Tax Receipt you will need a Florida Drivers License or similar identification, Federal Employee Identification number (FEI) and/or copy of the Social Security Card of the business/individual, sales tax number if applicable, and contact information for three persons who may be contacted in case of emergency. You will also need any of the forms and/or special requirements for the type of receipt you’re applying for.
