Payments for the Purchase and Lease of Items Used for the Operation or Maintenance of a Municipally-Owned Golf Course

Effective July 1, 2017, payments made for the purchase or lease of items used for the operation or maintenance of a municipally-owned golf course by an entity under contract with a municipality to maintain or operate a municipally-owned golf course are considered to be made directly by the municipality when the following requirements are met:

• Payment is made from golf course revenues or other funds provided by the municipality for use by the entity under contract;
• The municipally-owned golf course is located in a county with a minimum population of 2 million residents; and,
• Youth education programs are conducted on an ongoing basis at the municipally-owned golf course by a nonprofit organization exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Selling dealers are required to document tax-exempt sales and maintain the documentation in their records. When making exempt sales to an entity under contract with a municipality for such purpose as addressed above, a selling dealer should obtain a copy of the municipality’s Consumer’s Certificate of Exemption. Selling dealers should also retain a signed copy of the affidavit as provided for in the following suggested format:

---

AFFIDAVIT TO BE USED BY THE OPERATOR OF A QUALIFYING MUNICIPALLY-OWNED GOLF COURSE TO MAKE TAX EXEMPT PURCHASES

_______________________________ (purchaser’s name) certifies that the tangible personal property purchased or leased on or after _______________ (date) is exempt from sales tax because the property will be used for the operation or maintenance of __________________________ (a municipally-owned golf course), and that the following requirements have been met:

• Payment is made from golf course revenues or other funds provided by ________________ (the municipality) for use by the purchaser;
• The municipally-owned golf course is located in a county with a minimum population of 2 million residents; and,
• Youth education programs are conducted on an ongoing basis at the municipally-owned golf course by a nonprofit organization exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The undersigned understands that if the items purchased or leased do not qualify for exemption, or if the payment requirements listed above are not met, the undersigned will be liable for sales and use tax, interest, and penalties. Purchaser further understands that when any person fraudulently issues, for the purpose of evading tax, a certificate or statement in writing to a vendor or to any agent of the state in which he or she claims exemption from the sales tax, such person, in addition to being liable for payment of the tax plus a mandatory penalty of 200% of the tax, shall be liable for fine and punishment provided by law for conviction of a felony of the third degree, as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084, Florida Statutes.
