(b) A municipal corporation may impose an occupation, license, or professional tax upon real estate brokers based upon gross receipts only for real estate transactions with respect to property located within its corporate limits and a county governing authority may impose such a tax based upon gross receipts only for real estate transactions with respect to property located in the unincorporated area of the county.
