The purpose of this rulemaking is to update the Department's rules relating to discretionary sales surtax to address 2021 legislative changes contained in Chapter 2021-2, Laws of Florida, and Chapter 2021-31, Laws of Florida. Revisions to Rule 12A-15.001 and the proposed repeal of Rule 12A-15.002 remove reference to the sales tax bracket system, which has been replaced by a rounding algorithm (Chapter 2021-2, § 11, L.O.F.). Revisions to Rules 12A-15.003 and 12A-15.008 implement changes regarding the taxation of marketplace sales and remote sales (Chapter 2021-2, L.O.F.). Effective July 1, 2021, marketplace providers and persons who made a substantial number of remote sales in the previous calendar year are required to electronically register with the Department, collect sales tax, and electronically remit collected taxes. Revisions to Rule 12A-15.012 address when a dealer may advertise or hold out to the public that they will pay all or part of the sales tax imposed by Chapter 212 (Chapter 2021-31, § 19, L.O.F). Revisions to Rule 12A-15.014 replaces the commercial rent tax rate with a statutory citation to capture the rate change which will become effective when the Unemployment Compensation Trust Fund reaches a set dollar amount pursuant to Section 14., Chapter 2021-2, L.O.F.
