CORRECTED Electronic Address/Jurisdiction Database for Determination of Insurance Premium Tax Situsing
A corrected address/jurisdiction database for insurance premium tax (IPT) is now available for download at https://geotax.state.fl.us. This IPT address/jurisdiction database corrects information that was recently found to have been omitted from the initial database posted in November 2005. The affected cities are:
If you used the prior version of the database to assign policies and premiums to the proper local taxing jurisdiction for the 2005 insurance premium tax return due on March 1, 2006, please use this new information to correct your allocation. The single address lookup results will reflect the corrected information.
Sections 175.1015 and 185.085, Florida Statutes, direct the Department of Revenue (DOR) to create and maintain an electronic database to be used by insurance companies to assign policies and premiums to the proper local taxing jurisdictions for the Firefighters' and Police Officers' Pension Trust Funds. These local Insurance Premium Taxes (IPT) will continue to be reported by insurers on the DR-908, Insurance Premium Taxes and Fees Return, Schedules XII and XIII.
We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused.
If you need assistance downloading the address/jurisdiction database, please contact the Local Government Unit at 850-921-9181 or by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
