SALES TAX INFORMATION FOR EQUIPMENT OVER $5,000.
Florida Customers are required to pay Sales Tax on the purchase price of all products. Each county charges a different rate depending upon the local Discretionary Sales Tax. The Local Discretionary Tax is assessed only on the first $5,000 of sale price of each piece of equipment. Our store calculates the Florida Sales Tax amount based on the shipping destination of your order.
IF YOUR EQUIPMENT IS LESS THAN $5,000:
Discretionary sales tax is only charged on the first $5,000 of the equipment price. If the purchase price is less than $5,000 then the total amount of the product price is charged the Florida base rate and the Local Discretionary rate.
For example if the purchase price is $3,500 and you are shipping the equipment to Lake County, Florida then the Local Discretionary Sales tax rate is 1% and the tax due is $3,500 x .01 = $35 plus the Base Amount of $210 for a total tax of $245.
IF YOUR EQUIPMENT IS MORE THAN $5,000:
Discretionary sales tax is only charged on the first $5,000 of the equipment price.
For example if the purchase price is $6,500 and you are shipping the equipment to Hernando County, Florida then the additional sales tax rate is 0.5% and the tax due is $5,000 x .005 = $25 plus the Base Amount of $390 for a total tax of $415.
