Local Business Tax Receipts

Local Business Tax Receipts

The Local Business Tax Receipt (LBTR) is imposed for the privilege of doing business in the City of Bunnell. Anyone that engages in any type of business within the City limits is required to have a City of Bunnell Local Business Tax Receipt.

All receipts are sold or renewed by the City beginning July 1 of each year, are due and payable on or before September 30 of each year, and expire on September 30 of the succeeding year. Receipts not renewed by September 30 become delinquent and subject to a penalty of 10% for the month of October and an additional 5% for each month of delinquency thereafter. However, the total delinquency penalty may not exceed 25 percent of the tax for the delinquent establishment. The fee for new Local Business Tax Receipts issued from April 1, through September 30, shall be one-half the regular annual license tax.

The City of Bunnell has fixed Business Tax fees as established by the City Commissioners. These fees are attached to a classification that would describe your business.
