In Florida, short term residential leases are taxable. Residential leases (of condos, townhomes or single family homes) of six months or less are treated in much the same way as a resort or hotel stays are by the Florida Department of Revenue, requiring a 7% sales tax be added to the lease amount. Leases longer than 6 months are exempt from taxation. In order to avoid the tax: A six month lease… with even a single day added to it … will suffice for exemption.
