Who needs a DR-15 form?
This is a sales and use tax return for taxpayers in Florida. This form should be completed and filed by the taxpayers whose business activity is connected with sales.
What is this return for?
It’s a regular report to the Florida Department of Revenue from individuals, business entities and organizations which made sales or provided services on the territory of the state. It can be filed monthly, quarterly, annually, or can be submitted as an amended return.
Is it accompanied by other forms?
In some cases, you need to provide other documents to accompany the DR-15 form. You need to attach checks or money orders to your return if you mail the form to the Department of Revenue. If you impose a discretionary sales surtax on the reported sales, you need to add a completed copy of the DR-15DSS to this tax return.
When is form DR-15 due?
The payments are to be made by 5 p.m. of the business day before the 20th of the month after the reported period. For example, if it’s a return for sales made from September, 1st to September, 30th, the due date for paying applicable taxes is 5 p.m., October, 19th. The due date for a sales and use tax return is between the 1st and the 20th day of the month after the reported period.
