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 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 for a maximum of $50.
