Florida is the only state in the country that charges a sales tax on business rent, creating a financial burden for any business that leases space — from the local pet shop and hair salon to the multinational chain store. In addition to the 6% tax charged by the state, municipalities and local governments may levy an additional 1.5%. So in some communities, businesses are paying a 7.5% sales tax on their business rent.
