By Alex Toback, Tax & Business Services
On June 28th 2019, HB 7127 was signed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. This bill included new Florida Statute, Section 220.27, which requires additional information to be submitted to the Florida Department of Revenue. Every taxpayer that is required to file a Florida Corporate Income Tax Return for taxable years beginning during 2018 or 2019 calendar years, must submit the following information to the Florida Department of Revenue.
A Tax Information Publication (TIP) was issued on August 26, 2019 and sent to taxpayers who may be affected by these new requirements.
