The City offers exemptions to disabled honorably discharged veterans, un-remarried spouses of deceased disabled veterans, other disabled individuals, widows with minor dependents, and individuals age 65 or older as authorized by state law. An Application for Business Tax Receipt Exemption form must be completed and submitted with proof of eligibility and a Business Tax Receipt application. A Business Tax Receipt is still required to conduct business and will be issued free or at a reduced rate.
Charitable, educational and religious institutions may also qualify for an exemption. The Notice of Business Form must be completed and your business or institution must comply with zoning requirements and must be inspected by the Code Compliance Division.
If you think you qualify for an exemption, please contact the business tax office by email Business.Tax.Receipts@mlbfl.org or call (321) 608-7038 to discuss the specific requirements and the amount of the exemption.
