BUSINESS TAX RECEIPT (BTR)
Previously Occupational License
Effective January 1, 2007, the Florida Legislature enacted legislation which changed the name of the "Occupational License Tax" to "Business Tax Receipt". This is only a name/title change. The purpose of the law is to prevent fraud. The change in language shall apply to all Business Tax Receipts (formerly Occupational License Tax) renewals and new Receipts, issued after January 1, 2007.
