HOW DO I...
If I have a house, apartment, rooming house, etc that I rent do I need a Business Tax Receipt ?
The City of Tax Code requires that property owners and/or agents operating any of the above with the object for private gain, benefit or advantage, either direct or indirect, obtain a Business Tax Receipt and pay the required business taxes.
