Sales Tax
  • Sales tax is a tax on goods purchased

What does this mean for you? Practically speaking, it means that you'll pay a different sales tax rate in each Florida county

  • This means that sales tax can be both a state tax and a local tax
  • Ex. St Lucie county has a sales tax of 6.5%- 6% goes to the state and 0.5% goes to the county
  • Ex. Broward county has a 6% sales tax which means all of it goes to the state and none to the county
property tax
Property tax
  • Property tax is a tax paid on land or a house
  • It is a local tax
  • It is the main tax a county collects to run their governments, police departments, and fire departments.
federal income tax
Federal Income tax
  • Federal income tax- tax paid by every American based on their salary.
  • The percent of tax changes according to how much money a person makes.
  • These are the funds that provide income for our government.

  • Some cities (local) also have a city income tax, for example, New York City has a city incometax.
other federal taxes
Other federal “taxes”
  • There are 2 additional “taxes” taken out from a person’s salary though they are used differently than most taxes
  • Medicare provides medical insurance to people who are disabled or over 65
  • Social Security provides a small monthly payment to people who are disabled or over 65 to help cover things such as rent, electricity, and food.
  • These “taxes” are automatically taken by the government, much like federal income tax.
