Motor Vehicles & Mobile Homes
The State of Florida has a state sales and use tax of 6%. The Tax Collector, as an agent for the Florida Department of Revenue (DOR), collects sales and use tax on transactions when a customer applies for a title or transfers a title to motor vehicles, mobile homes, and boats/vessels. If a motor vehicle, mobile home, boat/vessel is traded in, sales tax is collected on the difference between the purchase price of the vehicle and the gross trade in allowance. Some exemptions to sales tax apply.
Lake County has an additional 1% Discretionary Surtax on the first $5000 of the purchase price for a maximum of $50.
