Your broker can only require what is required by state law. Since FL does not provide an income tax waiver, you cannot provide what he is asking, the tax assessor will not give you one. You need to send them a letter telling them that the state of FL does not have such a waiver and as such you cannot obtain one and he needs to check with his legal department who will verify that. Tell him if they do not release the money, you will have to take legal action for their bad faith denial and seek damages plus attorney's fees.
