The monies collected pay for state and local government services for Floridians. We continue to improve our customer service and technology to make reporting and paying taxes as convenient and easy as possible.

Legislation was passed in 2014 that requires retail sellers who sell prepaid wireless service to collect a 40¢ fee on each sale of prepaid wireless service that allows a caller to interact with the Enhanced 911 (E911) System. Retail dealers are allowed to retain the fees collected during January and February 2015 to reimburse their setup costs to collect the fee.

Beginning March 1, 2015, the fees collected are to be reported and paid to the Department. The first monthly and quarterly fee returns are due on April 1, 2015. If you sell prepaid wireless services at retail and have not registered with the Department to collect, report, and pay the fee, a simplified registration process is available at www.myflorida.com/dor/e911reg.
