Yes we are required to collect sales tax unless you have documentation that exempts you. Acceptable documentation according to the Florida Department of Revenue is a Florida dealer license and resale certificate for title items or just a resale certificate for non-titled items. If you are a dealer from another state then you will have to provide us with your states equivalent documents and you will have to sign an affidavit for our records. Purchasing something to export does not in of itself exempt a transaction from sales tax in Florida. Since we will not be the shipper, sales tax will be collected on all items purchased for export.
