The Department of Revenue’s General Tax Administration Program is proud to partner with
SCORE to provide Florida businesses the tools and

experienced volunteers provide free or low cost business advice and mentoring, as well as workshops and webinars.
In partnership with SCORE we recently presented our first webinar, Florida Sales and Use Tax Basics - Foundation for Your Success.
If you were unable to
participate, the recorded webinar is available. In this webinar, businesses can learn the basics of state sales and use tax and what our partnership with SCORE can mean
