The Florida League of Cities provides technical assistance with collection of delinquent local business taxes from insurance companies.
Collection of Delinquent Local Business Tax from Insurance Companies
The disbursement of delinquent and escaped local business taxes collected from insurance companies has added a significant amount of revenue to many Florida cities. The Delinquent Local Business Tax Collection Program (formerly the Delinquent Occupational License Tax Collection Program), created by the League in 1951, provides an additional source of revenue to participating members.
Through its consulting agency, the League researches and initiates collection procedures for unpaid local business taxes from insurance companies. Program participants receive 50% of the collection. They can add these companies to their current list in order to receive 100% of future collections. In many instances, the amount returned to the city exceeds the amount that city paid for dues to the Florida League of Cities.
