No person shall engage in or manage any business, occupation or profession within the corporate limits of the city without first obtaining a Business Tax Receipt (BTR) from the city for each business, occupation or professional activity. The local business tax is levied on:
Business Tax fees are due on October 1 each year and the BTRs expire on September 30 of the succeeding year. A BTR may be transferred to a new owner upon payment of a transfer fee and presentation of evidence of the sale and the original BTR. BTR holders must comply with all applicable codes of the City and County, including building, fire, and health codes and zoning laws.
