In the state of Florida...
In the state of Florida, do we have to charge sales tax to our customers if we pay it to the vendor for an order? This would be for Retail Sales Only, not orders that are associated to installing the product or doing work in the house.

Hello, I'm Robin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and typing up my reply. I'll post that in just a few moments.

Ask Your Own Tax Question

Yes. Your Florida Annual Resale Certificate for Sales Tax allows you to make tax-exempt purchases or rentals for resale tax exempt. Each sale unless exempt is required to collect for sales tax.

But we are already paying the tax so why does it matter whether we collect from the client?

Because you are reselling.
