Welcome to FindLaw’s Florida Tax Laws Center, where you can find information on Florida-specific tax laws. Like all other states, Florida has laws that require individuals to pay a percentage of their income toward state taxes. There are also consumer taxes that get applied to a number of different products and services, usually to raise revenues and inhibit certain behavior. Florida, for instance, taxes four cents for every gallon of gasoline and 48 cents for each gallon of beer.
