How to participate in CCBT

In January we will contact cities/counties during the annual expansion period and solicit interest in our City/County Business Tax (CCBT) Program.

What to do

Interested cities/counties will receive a Standard Agreement (Std 213) package to complete and sign. Mail your forms back to us by the due date (typically 8 weeks).

The city/county will need to complete the following:

  • Mail two sets of the agreement with original signatures back to us by the due date.
  • Obtain a resolution, order, motion or ordinance stating that the city/county has authorization to enter this Standard Agreement.

The Standard Agreement includes:

  1. Scope of Work
  2. General Terms and Conditions
  3. Special Terms and Conditions
  4. City/County Record Format Specifications
  5. FTB Record Layout Specifications
  6. Confidentiality Agreement

Next steps

Once we receive your completed and signed forms, you will:

  1. Receive a fully executed original copy of your Standard Agreement
  2. Be registered for a Secure Web Internet File Transfer (SWIFT) Account
  3. Receive instructions on how to use SWIFT
  4. Transmit your file using SWIFT
  5. Receive and complete a Safeguard Questionnaire

We will place Cities/Counties that do not complete these steps in the queue for the next annual expansion.
