Business Tax Receipts
The City Manager has designated the Finance Director as the Business Tax Receipt Official and she is therefore responsible for processing business tax receipt applications, renewals and maintenance of the business tax receipt database.
Sec. 205.013, Florida Statutes, is the act relating to what has been known as "Local Occupational License Tax". As of January 1, 2007, F.S. 205.013 has been amended to refer to "Local Business License Tax" in an attempt to clarify the purpose of the business tax and to prevent unscrupulous persons from presenting a local occupational license to consumers as proof of competency to perform various repairs and services.
Each month a list of new businesses applying for Business Tax Receipts are recorded and provided to the City Council so that they may contact these businesses and welcome them to the City of West Melbourne.

New Computer System
Beginning Monday, May 2, 2016, the city will be transitioning to a new computer system for its Building and Business Tax Receipt Departments. As a result, a 3% convenience fee will be charged by the new electronic payment processing company for any payments made using a credit or debit card. Over the next couple months, other departments within the city will also be making this transition. Additional notification will be made as these transitions occur. Thank you for your support while we work to improve the services we offer in these departments.
