Out-of-State
Businesses

Out-of-state businesses avoid collecting and remitting the taxes they owe to Florida state and local governments.

There’s a
Solution

ABOUT

Fighting for Fairness


There are more than 270,000 retailers in Florida, and these businesses provide more than 2.7 million jobs for Florida families.

Florida retailers aim to provide quality goods and excellent service at affordable prices to consumers in the Sunshine State. What’s more, Florida retailers support local charities, and pay state and local taxes.

Others, however, do not. Out-of-state businesses do not collect and remit sales taxes because the state of Florida is one of two states in the nation that has failed to modernize its laws.

Florida retailers – like Ben – are competing with one hand tied behind their back.
