Business Tax Receipt for Short Term Rentals

Per the Tourist Development Ordinance of Palm Beach County, Chapter 17, Article III, Sections 17-117, anyone who offers accommodations for short term rental must have a valid Local Business Tax Receipt. If you have not yet obtained your BTR, please download the Business Tax Receipt Form for Short Term Rentals. Complete one form for each short term rental property.

We cannot process BTR applications in our service centers. If dropping your application(s) off in person, you must come in to the Tax Collector's Administrative Office at: 

Governmental Center
301 N. Olive Avenue
3rd Floor
​West Palm Beach, FL 33401

You can also mail your completed application(s) and payment of $33 for each rental property to:

Tax Collector, Palm Beach County
Attn. Tourist Development Tax
P.O. Box 3715
West Palm Beach, FL 33402-3715

Please note: Zoning permission is NOT required for this type of BTR (vacation rental or home sharing). Zoning permission IS required for hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, etc. These types of businesses must use the standard BTR application which contains important zoning permission documentation.

If you have questions or require further assistance, please call us at (561) 355-3547 to speak with a TDT client service specialist Monday through Friday, 8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You may also email us at
