STATUS CHANGES BEGINNING JANUARY 2003
(ELECTRONIC FILING OBLIGATION)
|Electronic filing gives you special advantages. E-filing:|
If you are currently enrolled in the e-Services program (formerly known as EFT) you must now submit your return and payment via the Department's Internet site. Previously issued ID numbers will no longer be valid.
Intangible tax payments and returns may be submitted anytime after January 1 and are late after June 30.
If you do not correctly make payments of intangible tax by electronic means, the Department can impose penalty and interest.
The Department has been authorized to waive the electronic filing requirement under certain conditions. You will not be required to purchase equipment or incur a financial hardship to comply with this law. If you have a valid business reason for not filing returns electronically, you must submit a Request for Waiver from Electronic Filing (Form DR-654) to the Department no later than December 2, 2002. If your request is approved, you are still required to remit payments by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). Contact the Department at 850-488-6800 or 1-800-352-3671 (in Florida only) for more information.
