General Tax Administration Program

The General Tax Administration Program of the Florida Department of Revenue administers over 30 taxes and fees, including communications services tax, corporate income tax, fuel tax, reemployment tax, and sales and use tax. Read more...


Pursuant to Executive Order #21-80, COVID-19 Reemployment Assistance/Payment of Employer Contributions, the due date for payment of reemployment tax for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, has been extended to May 31, 2021. This extension applies only to the payment; to be considered timely, employers must complete and file the Employer’s Quarterly Report (Form RT-6) no later than April 30, 2021.


Due to impacts from winter storms, some taxpayers may be unable to file taxes timely. The Florida Department of Revenue will make every attempt allowed by law to work with affected businesses during this difficult time. On a case-by-case basis, the Department will work with tax filers who, despite good-faith efforts, are unable to file tax returns as required by law because of winter storms. Filing deadlines for taxpayers who are able to file will not change.


For Florida corporate income tax filers, the Department will follow the tax relief granted by the Internal Revenue Service regarding postponement of return due dates. Florida corporate income/franchise tax returns originally due, or due on extension, between February 11, 2021 and June 15, 2021 are now due June 30, 2021.


Taxpayers needing assistance should contact the Department to discuss their individual situations. To speak with a Department representative, call Taxpayer Services at (850) 488-6800, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).


The Notices of Benefits Paid (Form RT-1) and Reimbursement Invoices (Form RT-29) for the quarter ending December 31, 2020 are currently unavailable. These notices post debits and credits to employers’ accounts for benefits paid to their former employees. Interest will not be charged for any amounts due on Form RT-29 until 30 days after the Department mails the invoice to the Reimbursing Employer.
