Business Tax Receipt

To conduct business in the City of Apopka, all businesses must have a Business Tax Receipt. This Business Tax Receipt is a tax for the privilege of engaging in business, occupation, or profession within our City. Some businesses also require a State license, and we are required to obtain a copy of this license prior to issuing the City’s Business Tax Receipt. Once you have completed the process and obtained your City BTR, you will also need a Business Tax Receipt from Orange County.

To apply for a Business Tax Receipt, call 407-703-1712, or visit Community Development at City Hall, 120 E. Main Street, Apopka (corner of Main St/US Hwy 441 and Park Avenue). We also offer applications for Commercial and Home Business Tax Receipts in portable document format (pdf) which may be downloaded from this site. Please also review our Step by Step instructions and Frequently Asked Questions to assist you with the application process. We are not prepared to accept applications via internet submittal at this time, so please mail or carry your application to the address below.
