Resale Tax Certificates Must be provided to Auction Cashier to be exempt from paying tax at the auction.
***As a convenience to our customers we try to keep your resale certificates on file each year, once you have provided it to us. Please be prepared to show certificate if the auction cashier requests it, as sometimes your tax status is not updated in all our computer systems. It may take a few weeks for the tax status to be updated on all the different registration computers. Again, we offer this as convenience it is not something we are required to do. We fully appreciate your cooperation.
The State of Florida Sales Tax is computed on the total purchase price including buyer’s premium and applies to bidders residing within the state or purchasing at live auctions in Florida. The purchaser will be required to pay Florida Sales Tax unless exempted through possession of a valid State of Florida Sales Tax number/Resale Tax Certificate on file. Bidders must provide a copy of the Resale Tax Certificate in order to be exempt.
Please Note: The State of Florida has no arrangement of reciprocity with any other jurisdiction and the Auctioneer cannot honor a Sales Tax number from any other jurisdiction.
