The Town of Jupiter is pleased to introduce the new Jupiter Community Development System (JCDS).  This new resource will be utilized for new Business Tax Registrations, Renewing Business Tax Registrations and making changes to existing Business Tax Registrations.  JSDS will streamline business with the Town of Jupiter.

Current BTR Customers:
Recently, the Town sent all current Business Tax Receipt customers an email with instructions to access the new Jupiter Community Development System.  This email was sent to the primary address you have on file with the Business Tax Receipt office and included instructions on how to access the new system.

Through the JCDS, you will be able to review your existing business license(s), and starting July 1st, you will be able to renew your business license(s) online.  For additional renewal information, please visit BTR Renewals webpage.

New BTR Customers: 
A Business Tax Receipt (BTR) must be obtained BEFORE any business operates or engages in any type of business, occupation or profession.

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