Notes:

  • Florida does not allow the use of the multi-state exemption certificate. This change took place in late 2008 and many companies are unaware of this fact. As of 1/1/09 they will no longer record multi-state forms with FL id numbers as valid. For resale customers, a copy of the FL resale certificate is required or a MTC form or similar with confirmation/verification number from the state showing the account is in good standing.
  • Florida does not require a renewal of the sales tax certificate if sales have continued with this customer over the last 12 months per 12A-1.039 (3)(a)3. If there is a 12 month gap in sales, then a new certificate must be acquired.
  • Renewals of the sales tax certificate can be done online.
  • Per regulation 12A-1.039(3)(c ) states that customers who have previously submitted a valid annual resale license may check with the DOR to confirm the vendor is still in good standing and receive a vendor authorization number.
  • Resale information is documented in Florida Regulation 12A-1.039
