Business Tax Receipts

The Building Division issues Business Tax Receipts to those having a commercial and/or residential business within the city limits of Winter Haven.

Prior to applying and paying for a Business Tax Receipt, it should be determined if the business meets the Winter Haven zoning requirement for that location and if any Federal and/or State certification or inspections are required. If the business name will be different than your legal name, it is required that the business name be registered with the Florida Division of Corporations and proof is provided that the registration is active.

Home businesses are also required to provide proof of residency at the location where the business will be operating.
