Sales Tax 7% for Sarasota County Florida
Last Updated: 12/31/2019

Question: I noticed in my recent order you were charging me 7% for state tax. Why?

Required in Sarasota county, where we are located, and affects all sales made by customers with addresses in the State of Florida.

Please note, we are not keeping this extra 1%.
It is being forwarded to the State of Florida ( again, only on orders shipped to addresses in Florida ).

For details as to how the Surtax Law is to be applied ( and why we must collect it ),
see: see NOTE about Florist on Page 9
as an example of why the SALE is considered to take place in Sarasota County and subject to 1% surtax

Includes Shipping & Handling FEE: per Florida Administrative Code Rule 12A-1.045 (3), we are also required to collect sales tax on shipping.

Online purchases from are FOB Sarasota county, and the $ 6.60 S & H fee is include whether the order is picked up at our warehouse or shipped to customer in Florida.

The purchase is considered "made" in our county, and we ship but do not otherwise offer "delivery" of items to the end customer outside of Sarasota county.

No sales tax is currently collected for orders shipped outside of the State of Florida.
