With our SmartGov portal, you can take care of everything you need to acquire your Business Tax Receipt from the comfort of your home or office.
Step 1. Sign up for a SmartGov account.
This account will be your one-stop shop for permitting with the City of Longwood. You can apply for a new BTR, and you'll receive notifications when your renewal is due. You'll even be able to print your Business Tax Receipt from your home or office without making the trip all the way down to City Hall! You will use the same account for other permitting needs with the City including building permits. If you already have a SmartGov account - you can skip this step!

Some things you'll want to have handy when you sign up:
