Business Registration/Renewal Process


All Business Tax Registration is processed online through the Jupiter Community Development System (JCDS) portal. A valid e-mail address is required. For your convenience, if you do not have online access or need assistance, there are two (2) computer stations available in the BTR office at 210 Military Trail, 8AM-4PM, Monday-Friday.

Through the JCDS, you are able to apply for new business tax registrations, review your existing business license(s), and renew your business license(s) online. For additional renewal information, please visit BTR renewals webpage.

To apply for a Business Tax Receipt, new businesses and licensees must create an account through the Jupiter Community Development System (JCDS).
