Certain types of labor services are taxable in Florida including nonresidential cleaning, commercial pest control, and detective and security services. Certain communication services are also taxable for labor including telephone, cable, video conferencing and satellite services.
Florida labor services that are taxable require all invoices to list Florida sales tax as a separate line item from the actual service charge. All companies that offer taxable labor services must file form DR-1 with the Florida Department of Revenue.
Taxable labor services that fail to collect Florida sales tax may be noticed in an audit and subjected to fines and penalties. In addition to fines, the companies must pay back all taxes owed to the state, as determined by the Florida Department of Revenue.
