What is sales tax in Florida? - A general review on Florida sales tax rates

Generally, sales taxes in the U.S. are applied on three levels or jurisdictions: state, county, and city or municipality. In addition, some states use a special rate. In Florida, however, neither city nor municipality sales tax or special rate is applicable.

The Florida state sales tax is 6%, with varying county sales tax rates between 0% and 1.5%.

The average combined Florida sales tax rate in 2022 was 7.03%.

Shipping costs for taxable sales are typically taxable whether separately stated or included. However, separately stated transportation charges which can be avoided (by having a customer handle shipping) are exempt in Florida.

You can gain more detailed sales taxes information on Florida state website.

How do I use the Florida sales tax calculator?

As we mentioned, our tool is really simple to use as you need to provide the following two variables.

  • Purchase amount; and
  • Purchase location ZIP Code.

For example, if the purchase price of the item bought in Palm Beach is $100, you need to enter 33480 as the ZIP Code with the $100 purchase price, and you will immediately see the result of $7.

For better understanding, our tool also shows you the sales tax breakdown. In the present case, the final amount of sales tax builds up in the following way:

  • Florida state tax rate is 6%:
    $100 × 0.06 = $6.00

  • Palm Beach County tax rate is 1%:
    $100 × 0.01 = $1.00

  • Total sales tax rate for Palm Beach County, Florida, is 7%:
    $100 × 0.07 = $7.00
