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.
