Florida Entertainment Sales Tax Exemption
Effective January 1, 2001

Any qualified production company engaged in Florida in the production of motion pictures, made for television motion pictures, television series, commercial advertising, music videos or sound recordings may be eligible for a sales and use tax exemption on the purchase or lease of certain items used exclusively as an integral part of the production activities in Florida.

In order to be exempt from Florida's sales tax at the point of sale, the production company must apply for a certificate of exemption for presentation to a registered Florida sale and use tax dealer when making purchases and rentals of qualified production equipment.

If you have any questions regarding the Certificate of Exemption for Qualified Production Companies, please visit the Department of Revenue's Film in Florida page.
