Sales Tax Refund for Building Materials
Used in Redevelopment Projects
2013 Legislative Changes

The owner of a redevelopment project located within a brownfield area may apply for a refund of sales tax paid on building materials used in the project. Effective May 17, 2013, and applying to housing projects and mixed-use projects where site development or construction work is initiated on or after May 17, 2013, paragraph 212.08(5)(o), Florida Statutes, is amended. The amendment requires that each "brownfield area" in which housing projects or mixed-use projects are constructed must be a brownfield site for which a rehabilitation agreement with the Department of Environmental Protection has been executed, and any abutting real property parcel within a brownfield area. All other eligibility and refund application filing requirements remain the same.
