  5. Additional forms and attachments may be required depending on the type of business.  Please refer to the Business Tax Receipt Category Listings and Fees to determine which application requirements apply to your business type.
  6. Completed applications should be submitted to business tax's along with the licensing fee and a separate $25.00 safety inspection fee for new commercial businesses.  Please refer to the Business Tax Receipt Category Listings and Fees for the licensing fee.  Checks are made payable to the City of Delray Beach.
