Tax Law

Tax Law in Florida

Florida tax law as explained in the pertinent caselaw determines how federal, state and local governments calculate tax that people in the State of Florida owe in disputed cases. Florida sales tax rate is 6%. Florida does not have a personal state income tax. Florida Corporations that do business and earn income in Florida must file a corporate income tax return (unless they are exempt).

Exempt businesses from paying income tax include small businesses such as LLC’s, Partnerships and Sole Proprietorships.  In this case, the respective business owners would pay federal income tax on the business revenue at ordinary income tax rates in the same way as they do on income from a W-2 or contract job.  These are also Ad Valorem, Documentary Stamp, Use, Motor Fuel, Utility, and other State of Florida Taxes.
