Florida Payroll Tax Registration
Welcome to Florida, where as an employer, you are required to register for payroll tax. This process ensures compliance with state regulations and enables you to withhold and remit the appropriate taxes on behalf of your employees.
How Florida Payroll Registration Works
There is one payroll tax setup task you may need to complete in Florida to get your new hire on payroll for the first time. You can follow the guide below to help you get registered directly with the Florida agencies or use Mosey to do it.
Florida Reemployment Tax Setup
As an employer in Florida, you are required to register with the Department of Revenue for reemployment tax (Unemployment Insurance tax) if: (a) You are liable for federal Unemployment Tax, (b) Have had one or more employees in 20 different weeks within a calendar year, or (c) Have quarterly payroll of $1,500 or more in a calendar year. Note: You do not need to register for withholding tax as there is no personal income tax in Florida.
File Business Tax Application
Apply for a reemployment tax account online by completing the Business Tax Application on the Department of Revenue website. Upon approval, you will be issued a reemployment tax account number. You will also get a business partner number used across all of your tax accounts. Note: This is Florida's combined business taxes application. During the application process, you will have the option to also register for Sales & Use Tax.
