Florida Discretionary Surtax Rates Update for 2024


It is the start of a new year and businesses (and customers) should take note of the changes that became effective January 1, 2024. It is not as complex as in some other recent years.

For this year, there are no new surtax increases.  However, there was one surtax decrease as the Collier County local government infrastructure 1% sales tax was repealed effective December 31, 2023. That means Collier County only charges the 6% sales tax rate starting this year.

For those that like to look ahead, Seminole and Marion Counties currently have 1% surtax rates that are set to expire as of December 31, 2024.  Businesses and residents in those counties should watch to see if those surtaxes will be extended or will be allowed to expire to return to only charging the 6% state tax rate on taxable purchases and services.

You can find the current sales surtax rates for all Florida counties as a January 2024 below:


We can help with any questions you might have about state or county surtax rate questions or any other Florida tax questions you might have going into the new year.  We offer a free initial consultation and help address the best possible way to identify and correct sales tax calculation and reporting errors to help try and avoid a bad tax situation from becoming worse.  There is no better time than to confirm tax compliance than at the start of the year to avoid having to correct problems later through a liability or amended tax returns.
