What is it?

A Certificate of Use and/or Business Tax Receipt is required for any person or entity who maintains a permanent business location, branch office, or transacts business with sufficient nexus within the City's jurisdiction for the privilege of engaging in or managing any business or profession, except where exempted by law.


  •  Valid for one year (October 1st - September 30th the following year) 

  •  Non-renewed certificates/receipts (due September 30th) are delinquent and subject to fees and penalties.

  • If delinquent and not paid within 150 days (after the initial notice of tax due) civil actions and penalties may apply.
