Local Business Tax

Anyone operating a business within the City of Aventura is required to have a Certificate of Use and file a Local Business Tax. This includes:

  • Any person, firm, association or corporation maintaining a business location or branch office within the City limits for the privilege of engaging or managing a business, profession or occupation within the City
  • Any person who utilizes a residential unit to conduct a home business, profession or occupation

An application is required for each separate classification at the same business.

The Local Business Tax year is October 1 to September 30. The filing is annual and renewals are due on or before October 1 of each year. Fees are determined by the type of business or profession.

The penalty for operating without a current Local Business Tax Receipt starts at $250 and can escalate to higher enforcements.

Miami-Dade County has its own tax requirements. For more information, contact:
