NOTICE: OCCUPATIONAL LICENSE REPLACED BY LOCAL BUSINESS TAX RECEIPT
Effective January 1, 2007 Florida law requires that counties and cities replace the issuance of an occupational license or business license with the local business tax receipt. In accordance with this law, all persons operating a business inside the city limits of Lake Wales will be required to pay a local business tax. The City will issue a business tax receipt to be displayed on the premises of the business. See “Opening a Business in Lake Wales” for additional information.
