Coral Springs is once again offering a Business Tax Receipt Amnesty program to encourage businesses that have not received their Business Tax Receipt to apply with the City. This program allows first-time businesses or independent contractors who have been doing business in Coral Springs prior to October 1, 2011 the opportunity to apply with the City without a penalty.
The amnesty period is in effect from June 1, 2012 through September 30, 2012 and applies to the tax year beginning October 1, 2011 thru September 30, 2012. Any and all arrearages (assessment of back taxes plus penalties for up to a two year period) will be waived for qualifying applicants. The applicant must pay for the current year and next year’s Business Tax Receipt in order to be eligible for the program.
This amnesty period is established for all classifications that are listed in Section 1026 of the City of Coral Springs Land Development Code (Local Business Tax Receipt and Regulations). This section is available on the City’s website www.CoralSprings.org, under Code Enforcement. Employees receiving a W-2 statement from their Coral Springs employer are NOT required to obtain a business tax receipt.
