Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Welcome and thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you with your tax question.
Qualified organizations may receive a partial or total exemption on their properties:
Annual Application Required for Exemption
Florida law requires that all organizational applicants for a tax exemption be non-profit except for educational institutions. Although qualification as exempt under 501c3 of the Internal Revenue Code is a good start, this alone is not definitive as to non-profit status for exemption purposes under state law. We look at many things, including but not limited to:
Whether your organization has a consumer certificate of exemption from the Florida Department of Revenue;
Relationships between the organization and its members/officers;
Payments made to its members/officers; and
Charges made to those using its services
See 196.195 of the Florida Statutes for more detailed information.
I hope this information is helpful to you. Thank you.
