DATE ISSUED: May 22, 2014

Communications Services Tax
Islandia Removed as Taxing Jurisdiction
Effective Immediately

The City of Islandia (located in Miami-Dade County, population 18) has been removed from the list of local jurisdictions for communications services tax because the city was abolished by an ordinance passed by the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners. This change is effective immediately.

Islandia Service Addresses
The jurisdictional assignment of customers' service addresses located in Islandia should be changed to the unincorporated area of Miami-Dade County. The Miami-Dade County unincorporated area rate of 5.72% should be collected from those customers, regardless of the date the service is rendered or transacted.

Filing Returns
The Florida Communications Services Tax Return (Form DR-700016) and Internet filing application will not be updated until January 1, 2015. In the meantime, if you file returns using the Department's website, edit the profile and un-select Islandia. If you file using an electronic upload process, your file should not contain the code ZISL, which represents Islandia. Paper filers should ignore the line for Islandia.
