File and Pay Taxes / Fees
This page is designed for filers who are registered with the Department to collect and/or report tax in Florida and are ready to file electronically. If you have questions about a specific tax, you may view detailed information on the tax information pages.
Step 1: Make sure you are registered.
- You must register with the Department to collect and/or report tax before you can file and pay taxes and fees electronically.
If you have a Department-issued certificate of registration, reemployment (formerly unemployment) tax account, or business partner number, proceed to Step 2.
Step 2: Enroll to e-file and e-pay.
- Learn about requirements and options for electronic filing and payment.
- The Department encourages all taxpayers to enroll for e-Services. Although enrollment is not required to file and pay certain
taxes and/or fees, enrolled taxpayers can take advantage of additional features: you can save your bank account and contact information, view your filing history, and reprint returns. You can also view bills that are posted to your account. When you enroll, you will receive a user ID and password.
Enrollment is not required for:
- Communication services tax
- Documentary stamp tax
- Gross receipts tax
- Insurance premium tax
- Motor fuel tax (wholesaler/importer, petroleum carrier, exporter, & blender)
- Reemployment (formerly unemployment) tax
- Sales and use tax and/or solid waste surcharge
- If you are enrolled only to pay tax electronically and you wish to begin filing electronically, you may need to update your e-Services profile to add a filing method.
- Instructions for online enrollment - [PDF]
Step 3: E-file and e-pay taxes and fees using the Department's Internet site.
