Receipt Complaint

The City accepts complaints about businesses that give illegal receipts or fail to give a correct receipt.

Consumer protection laws require businesses to offer you a receipt on purchases of $20 or more. For purchases between $5 and $20, a receipt must be given if you request one. All receipts must show the total amount paid, including a separate statement of tax, date, actual business name and address of the merchant, and the make and model of audio, photographic, and video equipment. Receipts must be itemized.

By law, all businesses that accept payment by credit card must remove the expiration date and all but the last five digits of the credit card number on the customer copy of receipts.
