Florida Department of Revenue Vows to Be More Accurate
- Jun 9, 2014 | Gail Cole
In 2013, the Florida Department of Revenue issued some 96,413 warrants for taxes filed erroneously. It later withdrew more than 7,000 of those warrants, including one sent to Governor Rick Scott. Oops.
The department’s executive director, Marshall Stranburg, has vowed to make improvements: “Over 7 percent of tax warrants filed in error in 2013 is an unacceptably high percentage.” He says the Department of Revenue “has worked to tighten protocol to be better stewards of taxpayer dollars.”
Simplify sales tax filing and remain calm in the face of a tax warrant.
