Tax Collection On Internet Sales To Begin In Florida

In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in South Dakota vs. Wayfair that states can require online businesses to collect sales taxes, even if they do not have a physical presence in the state. After nearly 3 years, Florida is finally about to do so.

On April 19th, 2021, Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law a tax package, Senate Bill 50, to require out-of-state online retailers to collect sales taxes on purchases made by Floridians.

Beginning on July 1st, 2021, retailers selling more than $100,000 a year online will have to start collecting 6% sales tax from residents at the point of sale. Businesses who sell less than $100,000 a year online will be exempt from collecting this tax.
