Q3: What are the administrative and legal appeal procedures to contest a notice of sales tax deficiency?

A3: Appealing to the Department of Revenue in Florida

If you do not agree with a penalty or decision made by the Florida Department of Revenue, you have the right to file an appeal and ask for reconsideration. In the case of a department appeal, an official petition must be filed with the Department of Revenue within sixty days after the issuance of the assessment that has been proposed.

Q: Sales tax in Florida on motor vehicles, what is the date the sale needs to be reported to the DOR?

A: The date that the sale is reported to the FL DOR is the date that your sales tax return is due. Sales tax returns are due on different dates for businesses. You must first find out if your filing basis is on a monthly, semi-monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis.
