Estate Tax Return Zero Filing Requirements Have Been Extended

For dates of death between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2012, if the estate is not required to file Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 706 or Form 706NA, the personal representative should use Florida Form DR-312, Affidavit of No Florida Estate Tax Due, to release the Florida estate tax lien.

For dates of death between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2012, if the estate is required to file Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 706 or Form 706NA, the personal representative should use Florida Form DR-313, Affidavit of No Florida Estate Tax Due When Federal Return is Required, to release the Florida estate tax lien.

Forms DR-312 and DR-313 are admissible as evidence of no liability for Florida estate tax and will remove the Department's estate tax lien. These forms must be filed with the clerk of the court in the county where the property is located. Do not send these forms to the Department of Revenue.
