Business Tax Receipts
BTR UpdateBusinesses in the Town of Jupiter will no longer be required to apply for or renew their business licenses with the Town. On August 17, 2021 the Jupiter Town Council passed Ordinance 14-21, repealing Town of Jupiter Business Tax Receipts (BTR).
Palm Beach County Local Business Tax Receipts will still be required of all current and new businesses and professionals in the Town of Jupiter. Existing businesses should renew with the County by September 30 and new businesses should submit applications via the Palm Beach County Tax Collectors Office website.
In addition, the Town of Jupiter will no longer require business operators to obtain Town approvals for the zoning portion (section #2) of their Palm Beach County Business Tax Receipts. However, all businesses still must adhere to the Town’s Lands Development Regulations, site specific development order conditions and other applicable requirements. This includes, but is not limited to, zoning, parking requirements, development order (site plan, special exception, planned unit development, etc.) conditions, impact fees, occupancy change requirements, etc. Finally, all business owners must still adhere to any County requirements for Business Tax Receipts.
