Welcome to the City of Miami Beach's Online Business Tax Receipt
Applying for a Business Tax Receipt is as easy as 1-2-3-4!!!
Login/ Register – In order to use the on-line Business Tax Receipt application you first need to register so you can login. Before registering select whether the business tax receipt is for an individual or a business.
Select Business tax Receipt – Select the Business you are opening from the list. If you do not find your business please call or visit our office for assistance.
Select Type/Enter Info – Select the type of Business Tax Receipt you are applying for and complete the application. Make sure that you fill out all the required fields.
Upload and Submit – Upload all required documents to complete the application process. NOTE: If you do not complete the application process within 30 days you will have to re-apply.
                  
         The Business Tax Receipt Section of the Finance Department is found on the first floor of city hall. The initial application for a Business Tax Receipt/Permit is submitted here along with   any required documentation.
Once submitted, an Business Tax Receipt activity number is assigned and the application is entered into the database.
As soon as the application is entered, all departments required for approval are notified of the application and each area reviews the application simultaneously.
Following up on this process, scheduling inspections, coordinating with the appropriate departments etc. is the customer's responsibility.
Once all approvals are received, then the customer can come in to the counter on the first floor to pay the necessary fees and pick up the license/permit.
The Finance Department is usually the last department to sign off on a license after all other approvals are received.
Once we verify that all approvals have been received and that the applicant is current with any monies owed, the Business Tax Receipt is issued.
The length of the process will depend on the type of license/permit and the current  permitted use of the place of business.
            If you rent any rooms in any hotel, motel, rooming house or apartment house or sell food , beverages, alcoholic beverages at retail in any restaurant you will be required to register for Resort tax when your Business tax receipt is issued and before opening the business. Download the application and registering information for more details.
