It is important to safeguard against scams and fraudulent communications. If you are contacted by an individual or group claiming to be the Florida Department of Revenue and you suspect you have been targeted for a scam, contact the Department's Taxpayer Services at 850-488-6800 or the Child Support Customer Contact Center at 850-488-5437 (KIDS) to verify the communication came from the Department of Revenue. You can also visit or contact a local office to verify.


Beginning January 1, 2018, parents will receive a Title IV-D Standard Parenting Time Plan with their administrative packet when the Department is establishing paternity or establishing or modifying a child support order. To learn more about parenting time plans, visit the Parenting Time Plans page.


​Florida law requires business owners who paid $200,000 or more in state sales tax (excluding local option taxes and surtaxes) during the preceding state fiscal year to pay estimated sales tax. Beginning with the December 2017 tax return, estimated tax must be paid each reporting period with the first payment due January 1, 2018. A letter explaining the requirements was sent to each business owner newly obligated to pay estimated tax. Obligated businesses that do not pay or underpay estimated tax lose their collection allowance and are subject to a 10% penalty plus interest on the underpaid amount. A tutorial on calculating estimated tax is available on the Taxpayer Education webpage.


​The minimum reemployment tax rate for 2018 will remain at .0010 (0.1%) or $7.00 per employee. The rate is imposed on annual wages of up to $7,000 per employee. The maximum reemployment tax rate for 2018 will remain at .0540 (5.4%).  A Reemployment Tax Rate Notice (Form RT-20) will be mailed to all employers in December. The RT-20 contains the tax rate applicable to each employer.


​The state sales tax rate on the total rent charged for renting, leasing, letting, or granting a license to use commercial real property for rental periods beginning on or after January 1, 2018, is decreased from 6% to 5.8%. The local option discretionary sales surtax imposed by the county where the real property is located continues to apply to the total rent charged. For more information, review Tax Information Publication 17A01-15.
