Local Business Tax


All businesses are required to have a Local Business Tax Receipt (formerly known as Occupational License) when operating a business within the Town of Pierson.  In Addition, Volusia County requires all businesses to file and pay their business tax receipt there as well.   This is for Home Based businesses too.


Business Tax Receipts are valid from October 1st until September 30th each year.   


All new applications need to be accompanied with a copy of at least two of these items listed:      

  • Driver's License
  • Fictitious Name - from Sunbiz.org
  • Corporation Name - from Sunbiz.org
  • General Liability / Workers Compensation Insurance


As of October 1, 2014 the cost for a Local Business Tax License will be $50.00

Letters to this effect have gone out advising of this change. As a business owner, you are responsible for the renewal of your receipt also the advisement of the termination of the business.


Thank you.
