Out of State Sales Tax:
Section 212.08(10), F.S. of the Florida Department of Revenue tax information publication states: The tax imposed is the amount of sales tax that would be imposed by the purchaser’s home state if the vehicle were purchased in that state; however; it is not to exceed the Florida state 6% sales tax rate.
The nonresident purchaser is required to complete, at the time of sale, Form DR-123; Affidavit for Partial Exemption of Motor Vehicle Sold for Licensing in Another State, declaring his/her intent to license in his/her home state within 45 days of the sate of sale.
The partial exemption for a motor vehicle/trailer sold in Florida to a nonresident purchaser does not apply to a nonresident cooperation partnership when:
- An officer of the corporation is a Florida resident;
- A stockholder who owns a least 10% of the corporation is a Florida resident; or
- A partner who has at least a 10% ownership in the partnership is a Florida resident.
However, the partial exemption may be allowed to corporations or partnerships if the vehicle is removed from Florida within 45 days after purchase and remains outside this state for a minimum of 180 days, regardless of the residency of the owners or stockholders of the purchasing entity.
Currently, the states of Arkansas and Mississippi impose a sales tax on motor vehicles and trailers, but they DO NOT allow a credit for taxes paid to Florida. Residents of these states should be made aware that they are required to pay sales tax to Florida at the rate imposed by their home state when they purchase a vehicle in Florida and WILL ALSO be required to pay tax to their home state when the vehicle or trailer is licensed in their home state.
