Effective January 2007 the Florida Legislature changed the name of Occupational Licenses to Local Business Taxes and in order to maintain consistency with the statutory changes , the Florida Association of Occupational Licensing Officials (FAOLO) changed its name to the Florida Association of Business Tax Officials (FABTO).
To provide a professional association where business tax officials may
cooperate and consider matters of mutual concern, including the exchange of ideas and information
among the municipalities and counties from throughout the state of Florida.
FABTO membership is divided by six local chapters based on geographical locations within Florida.
Beginning in 2014 FABTO membership information and renewals will no longer be handled at the chapter level but will go directly to the FABTO Membership Director. This change will assist our members by providing a more consolidated and efficient record of our members and allow communication to flow more effectively.
Membership Renewal information and forms will be made available on this site and will also be sent to all current FABTO members in early December 2013. In the meantime, if you have any questions please feel free to contact FABTO Vice President Debby Morakis at email@example.com
The 26th Annual FABTO Educational Conference will be held May 6th - 9th, 2014 at the B Resort (formerly the Royal Plaza Hotel) in Lake Buena Vista. Please visit the Conference page for further information. Conference registration forms are now available on the Conference page as well and specific conference agenda details will be provided as they become available.
We look forward to seeing you all in May 2014.
Welcome to the FABTO website!
As always, it is vital to make certain that your city or county is
administering the Local Business Tax correctly and stays up to date in regards
to the latest Local Business Tax information and legislation. FABTO and the FABTO Annual Educational Conference remain the best sources for Local Business Tax education and information.
Keep in mind that the community discussion forums section of the FABTO website is a great way to network and exchange business tax information with fellow business tax professionals from around the state between conferences and chapter meetings. Please be sure to log on under the Member Area tab and make use of this valuable tool. If you have not already registered as a user please click here. Remember, you must be a current member of FABTO to use the discussion forums.
The Board of Directors would like to continue to encourage every member to become active with FABTO at the chapter or state level (or both). If you are aware of any individuals or areas that may benefit from being a part of FABTO please tell them about us or let us know about them.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding FABTO please let us know . We're here to help. Thanks again and we look forward to hearing from each of you and seeing you all again at next years conference!
