APPLICANT AFFIDAVIT

I acknowledge that the issuance of a Business Tax Receipt is contingent upon compliance with all ordinances, regulations, and provisions of the City of Zephyrhills. Should any structure or conditions be found in conflict with building codes and fire safety requirements, that department shall set forth its objections and requirements for corrections. It is then my responsibility to correct the deficiency and request a reinspection. The  Business Tax Receipt may not be issued until those corrections are  made in compliance of all City codes and all applicable fees are paid.

I certify that all the information contained herein is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief. It is further understood that I must comply with all City of Zephyrhills codes, and failure to correct any conditions in violation is punishable under the code. I understand that if I engage in a business under a Fictitious name, I must comply with the “Fictitious Name Statute,” Section 865.09 Florida Statutes.
