Vendor Permits

We issue a Local Business Tax Receipt (formerly known as Occupational License Tax Receipt) for any Business, Occupation, or Profession operated in Jacksonville/Duval County. This is not a license, permit, and/or registration and is separate from any state required licenses, permits, and/or registrations.

If the nature of your business is listed below than a vendor permit is required in addition to a local business tax receipt. The State of Florida licenses all Mobile Food Dispensing Vehicles (MFDV) including food trucks, hot dog carts, and similar devices through the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. This license must be obtained prior to us issuing the City of Jacksonville and/or Duval County Local Business Tax. The Duval County Tax Collector’s office will no longer issue vendor permits for MFDVs after July 2020.
A checklist related to vendor permits can be found here

Additional information regarding Food Trucks can be found at
We issue all Business Tax Receipts and Vendor's Permits from our Downtown location, 231 E Forsyth St. (Click here for map).
