Local Business

Business in Green Cove Springs

Congratulations on opening or growing your business! We're happy you've chosen Green Cove Springs. The Local Business Tax takes the place of what used to be known as an occupational license. It's an annual fee that gives you a Local Business Tax Receipt which is good from October 1 to September 30th of each year. Renewals are sent out in July of each year. Payment is due by September 30th.

Before leasing a space in the City, it is strongly recommended you contact the Development Services Department to ensure the space is properly zoned for your business.

In order to apply for a local business tax, please fill out the Business Tax Application. The application and required documents can be submitted in person or via email.
