The Florida Association of Business Tax Officials, Inc. is a non-profit professional association meeting the educational and informational needs of municipal and county business tax officials throughout Florida. The organization was established in 1988 as the Florida Association of Occupational Licensing Officials, Inc. by the Bay Area Chapter. As statewide interest grew the Central Florida, Gold Coast, Big Bend, Palm Beach, and Treasure Coast Chapters were formed.

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).

Our Mission

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.
