Is an Occupational License the same as a Business Tax Receipt?

Yes, On January 1, 2007, the legislature passed House Bill 1269. The name of the Act will be changed from the "Local Occupational License Tax Act" to the "Local Business Tax Act." The definition of "receipt" as it relates to the bill will be defined as the document that is issued by the local governing authority, which bears the words "Local Business Tax Receipt" and evidenced that the person in whose name the document is issued has complied with the provisions of the Local Business Tax Act. Persons who pay occupational business taxes will receive a receipt for payment rather than a "certificate."
