Florida Sales & Use Tax

Florida Sales and Use Tax Law Attorney

There are a variety of businesses and circumstances where there is a requirement to pay Florida sales taxes. Not every business has knowledge of their sales tax obligation and only finds out when they are contacted by the Florida Department of Revenue (DOR). If you sell retail goods, have services that may also include tangible items, or have commercial rent, you may be subject to Florida sales tax.

Since Florida does not have an income tax, Florida is very aggressive in enforcing sales tax compliance. It is one of the main revenue streams for the State of Florida along with property taxes. There may not be many businesses that enjoy collecting and sending off that money to the Florida DOR, but it’s a crucial part of Florida’s economy.

What Happens If I Receive A Letter From The IRS About My Business?

Receiving letters and visits from Florida DOR officers can be just as scary and damaging to your business as receiving the same from the IRS. Used car dealers and convenience stores are particular targets for enforcement actions. Our attorneys can assist you with an audit, voluntary disclosure of due taxes with the DOR, and making sure your business is compliant with the DOR.

Most businesses know that the sales tax in Florida is 6%. However, there are circumstances where this tax rate can be higher in certain locations or for certain transactions. You must be aware of these so you can comply with DOR regulations. There are also filing requirements to be aware of that can trip up new business owners.

For instance, you may be used to filing quarterly taxes to the IRS as a business owner, but if you collect more than $1000 in sales tax over the fiscal year you have to file returns and send the money in monthly to the Florida DOR. Most new businesses are allowed to file quarterly, but once you get on your feet the taxman will come knocking. We can help you understand Florida tax law and what your obligations, responsibilities, and rights are in regard to Florida’s tax system.
