What is a Business Tax Receipt?

If you engage or manage any business, profession, or occupation within the City of Coconut Creek, you will need to apply for and obtain a Business Tax Receipt (BTR). Whether your business is operated from a commercial location or is home-based, a BTR is required pursuant to both state and local law. If your business has more than one location, a separate BTR is required for each location. Payment of this tax receipt does not certify or imply any competence of the licensee. All businesses must comply with zoning codes and inspections.


Business Tax Receipt Applications

Prior to opening, any new business, relocating or transferring of an existing business within the City, must obtain a Business Tax Receipt. Complete the appropriate application and submit it via email to Business Tax Receipts. To prevent a delay in the review of your Business Tax Receipt application, ensure all required documents are submitted with the application. Once an application is submitted and processed, you will receive an email with instructions on how to proceed.


BTR Renewals

BTR’s expire annually on September 30th and must be renewed before expiration to avoid late penalties. To renew your business tax receipt online, you will need your Business ID number or Business Name (only enter ONE) and a credit card.

If you have any questions you can email us at or call 954-973-6752. Refer to Municode for information on delinquent fees.
